2009 marked the centenary of an organisation so secret that for nearly 100 years, no one outside the tightest government circles would admit it even existed. MI5 is the world’s oldest intelligence agency and one of the most sophisticated arms of the government.Its members work in the shadows and are unknown to the world at large – sometimes even to their own families. Inside MI5 – The Real Spooks has unprecedented access to this secret world. We will hear for the first time from men and women who have worked for MI5, as we reveal exactly how the secret service works in an age of global terrorism, freedom of information and greater transparency. Working with historian Professor Chris Andrew, wetell the story of this remarkable organisation.
