Christopher Andrew – Emeritus Professor of Modern and Contemporary History, University of Cambridge – talks about 500 years of Cambridge spies.
Spies have long been a Cambridge tradition. They were the main motif in Queen Elizabeth I’s last dress. More recently, there were times in the 20th century when Cambridge provided the best spies for both Britain and Russia.
