Eye of the Day - Mata Hari
This episode is about the woman known as Mata Hari, which in the Malay language means Eye of The Day. Mata rose to fame as an exotic dancer in the early 20th Century and was one of the most connected socialites in Europe. However, during the First World War she was accused of being a spy and executed by firing squad. She's perhaps one of the most well-known women featured on Tales from No Man's Land and is often cited as the archetypal Femme Fatale in art and film, yet very little is known about her actual life. Frank speaks to film historian Pamela Hutchinson about the legacy of Mata Hari, and the woman behind the myth.
