Looking for snappy, informative video clips about spies in the American Revolution for an espionage class for kids in 6th- 9th grade. Help?

Youtube, PBS, history channel, whatever. Most of what I'm finding is either way too dry, or not directly related to the topic at hand. Other resources I'm planning to use include this: http://www2.si.umich.edu/spies/index-stories.html and this: http://www.amazon.com/Invisible-Ink-Spycraft-American-Revolution/dp/1594161410/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1352756026&sr=8-4&keywords=spies+in+the+american+revolution

I'm looking for something like 1776, or the John Adams miniseries -- recommendations for popular films (or alternatively, a snarky youtube series) would be great too. Length doesn't matter -- mostly, it needs to be engaging and factually accurate, and a starting point for discussion and parallel activities.

Does the Swamp Fox count? Youtube has lots of clips from the Disney series.
