Inside Story: Caught In Customs

About the Show

It’s awards season and movie critics are buzzing over Ben Affleck’s “Argo,” which chronicles the CIA’s attempt to rescue six Americans during the Iran hostage crisis. But what really happened during the covert operation? And did the events really unfold as seen in the movie? In ARGO: Inside Story, Discovery Channel gains access to the top players involved to hear their side of the story, including the CIA’s “chief of disguise,” Tony Mendez, who was called upon to devise the rescue plan. The one-hour special gives an inside look at the dramatic escape and how Mendez forged identity documents and elaborate disguises to get past the security agents at the Tehran airport.
