Fun and games discussing the role of the female MI5 intelligence officer, and the organisation’s ongoing attempts to recruit them. The other guest on the show was MI5’s official historian, Christopher Andrew.
Link to the BBC Radio4 Woman’s Hour show.
Regular as clockwork, this story comes around every few years as you can see from this interview I did for The Independent in 2006. This suggests to me that MI5 not only has a problem recruiting female spooks, but also can’t keep hold of them!
