"The Spy Behind Home Plate" — LAST DAY

(May 31-Jun. 13) — Following her Peabody award-winning "The Life and Times of Hank Greenberg," Aviva Kempner once again turns to the fascinating (in this case double) life of a Jewish baseball player: Moe Berg. A rarefied intellectual from Newark, New Jersey, Berg played as a catcher for five major league teams… and was also a spy for the OSS during WWII as part of the effort to undermine the German atomic bomb program. Rare archival footage and interviews with historians, sportswriters, and espionage experts unravel this stranger-than-fiction story.
