Just been listening to a report on the wireless: BBC News - The 'secret agents' of the UK press All I can say is that it would be astonishing if they weren't. In the late 80's a colleague told me of another colleague 'Jack T' who had been invited to tea at an address in Whitehall to discuss his forthcoming trip to to Sofia. He was doing something on Bulfracht a Bulgarian shipping company that had been involved in moving T type tanks about (allegedly). Our intrepid colleague had been unwise enough to blab about this to us- and was most pissed off when the two of us took the piss out of Jack's new Bond like status. None of us ever mentioned it again and he continued to visit various Eastern Block countries for some time as far as I know. It was a well known fact that Mi5 had an office at TV centre and we continue to take the piss out of another colleague who gets his 'orders' from Thames House. ...how the BBC can run a story about possible Mi6 involvement within the Beeb without any reference to F**** G****** at all beats me.
