The Plot To Kill Franco

In 1964 an 18-year-old Scottish anarchist was part of an anti-Franco group in London. He smuggled explosives into Spain in a plot to kill General Franco.

Stuart Christie, who is now in his sixties, recalls his clandestine journey across Europe, the secret signals and passwords he used, and his eventual arrest by Franco's secret police.
