Intelligence insiders reveal the difficult task they face with an ever-evolving threat and a constant arms race between the state and criminals over surveillance technology.
Who's Watching You? explores how increasingly modern surveillance relies on computer databases watching and recording all of us, not just the criminals and terrorists.
Richard Bilton talks to former insiders who question the government's argument that if you have nothing to hide you have nothing to fear, and who say that is an argument for total surveillance and a total security state.
