Real spies feel the Bond effect


The world of espionage has always been romanticised by novelists and film-makers. But what do the spies themselves think of their fictional portrayal? Security correspondent Gordon Corera reports on the importance of spy fiction for the real spies in MI6.

MI6: A Century in the Shadows is a three-part series for BBC Radio 4. The first episode, Gadgets and Green Ink, will be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on Monday 27 July at 0902 BST. Or listen again via iPlayer.
