Michael Portillo 'The Secret State' episode 6 'Traitors and Spies'

Michael Portillo made an excellent series for BBC2 entitled ‘The Secret State’. Episode 6 (‘Traitors and Spies’) featured me talking to Michael about George Blake’s astounding prison escape from Wormwood Scrubs in 1966 – an event chronicled in detail in The Greatest Traitor.
