The 24 b/w episodes with a running time of 48 minutes per episode had no regular cast, choosing instead to follow various "spies" as they did their "jobs." The episodes featured spies for the West, for the Soviet Bloc, spies working for peace and resistance operatives. The episodes drifted between contemporary times, the Second World War and the interwar period with occasional episodes set in other times.
Featured guest stars included:
- Martin Balsam
- David Kossoff
- Dennis Hopper
- Patricia Neal
- Joan Hickson
- Patrick Troughton
- Billie Whitelaw
- Patrick Cargill
- Jill Bennett
- Millicent Martin
- Anthony Quayle - a real-life "spy" with the Special Operations Executive during World War II.
Many of the cast members were largely unknown in the United States when this series was first broadcast and some members would go on to fame in the US because of the exposure.
This list is in NBC's airdate order.
The theme music was composed and conducted by Malcolm Arnold.
