Series As it happened (Television program)
Summary "In 1978, Georgi Markov, a Bulgarian dissident working for the BBC, was travelling to work when a man carrying an umbrella collided with him on Waterloo Bridge. Markov felt as if he had been stung by something - but thought no more about it. What seemed at first like a curious accident turned into an extraordinary detective story, when three days later Markov died. The incident, known as the "Umbrella Murder" became one of the most notorious stories of the Cold War. Thirty years on, the Markov murder remains unsolved and the perpetrators of the crime have never been brought to justice. The film shows how British and American scientists solved the extraordinary forensic puzzle surrounding Markov's death.
