Second hour: EXCLUSIVE: Death of former MI6 agent John Ainsworth-Davis, author, under the pen name Christopher Creighton, of the book ‘Op JB’ about the secret 1945 British rescue of Hitler’s deputy Martin Bormann at the end of WWII.

Forensic explanation of the hard evidence for the survival of Bormann and his life in South America in the late 1940s and 1950s building a financial 4th Reich. Its not a ”conspiracy theory” that Martin Bormann survived post 1945 but there is documentary evidence that the remains found in Berlin of Martin Bormann in 1972 bore the following scientific conclusions; 1) The teeth as confirmed by Forensic dental Surgeon Prof Sognnaes (involved in the 1972 forensic investigation of the remains) had dentistry that was early 1950’s (dead men do not go to the dentist); 2) The position of the teeth proved they were of a much older man than 45. (Bormann was Born in 1900); 3) The skeletal composition showed ”ageing” of a man in his 60’s it is claimed he died when he was 44; 4) The skull was encased in a red clay exotic to Europe but local to the very place Laurence De Mello’s and others’ investigations place Bormann at the time of his death: Paraguay.
