Secrets of Her Majesty’s Secret Service

Secrets of Her Majesty’s Service

 

Her Majesty’s Secret Service, or MI6 as it is known, is the world’s most legendary spy agency, thanks to the James Bond stories. Set up in 1909 as the Secret Service Bureau, the existence of MI6 was not formally acknowledged until 1994 – which goes a long way toward understanding the modus operandi of this government agency. With unprecedented access to some of the key players in British espionage, this film lifts the veil on the shadowy world of spying, going back in time and behind the scenes to look at some the world’s most calculated and delicately executed operations.

 

 

 

Secrets of Scotland Yard

 

From Dickens to Sherlock Holmes, Agatha Christie to James Bond, no police institution in the world has caught the public imagination in the same way as Scotland Yard. The name has become synonymous with London’s police force, but actually comes from the location of the original police headquarters building. Its officers and “bobbies” are protectors of the Royal Family and British officials, but Scotland Yard is most often associated with police detectives. In this special, contemporary sleuths reveal the secrets of what it takes to become a modern-day Sherlock Holmes.
