In late 1942, on the recommendation of 26-year-old Bob Santamaria, Australia's Catholic bishops took the first steps in creating a clandestine church organisation to smash the Communist Party's massive trade union base. Before long, The Movement, as it was known, developed into a sophisticated intelligence agency. Santamaria based his Movement (also called The Show) completely on the Communist Party, copying its spectacularly successful union-organising machinery. Drawn from previously secret archives of both The Movement and the Communist Party, ASIO's massive files, and extensive oral history interviews, The Show exposes a previously unseen side of Santamaria's Catholic Movement.
