Beyond Bond; the True MI5
Rob Smith will once again take Royal Oak through the streets of London as we divulge into the espionage and counterintelligence that tells the frightfully true stories that inspired spy fiction. On this virtual tour we will see how the British security services were set up, organized, and the harrowing role they played in both world wars as well as the cold war continuing until present day.
We will visit the buildings used by the MI5, SIS (formally known as MI6), Defense Intelligence and SO15. Join us as we dive into the places used by the security services that hide in plain sight as thousands of Londoner’s passes by each day. Along the way we will hear true spy stories, like the amazing tale of Agent Zigzag, a confident trickster, who was a hero to both sides and a betrayer to all.
The woman SIS operative that helped catch Russian double agent Kim Philby, the unfortunate Agent Snow and the ungentlemanly warfare conducted by Section D.
