MI5's 'big' Bronowski file

Files released today show that MI5 labelled the scientist and broadcaster Jacob Bronowski a "security risk" for nearly 20 years.

Though he had a successful career he was blocked from certain jobs, like some atomic research.

Sanchia Berg spoke his daughter, professor Lisa Jardine, who has seen the file and says its reliance on hearsay evidence reminds her of the East German Stasi.
