Why was Stasi after James Bond

James Bond is the world’s most famous movie agent and has been under surveillance even in real life. Not only did a million people watch the Berlin scenes from Bond’s classic “Octopussy” (1983), but also the Ministry of State Security (Stasi).

Documents from the German Federal Archives, available to the German newspaper “Bild”, also show that the East German Stasi was particularly interested in filming the Bond movie in the German capital. In the film, James Bond (Roger Moore, 1927-2017) meets his boss, the head of MIT (Robert Brown, 1921-2003) in West Berlin and receives new papers there. Objective: to travel to the German Democratic Republic with a different identity. The scene was filmed on August 10, 1982 at the Charlie Border Checkpoint.
