Secrets of Her Majesty's Secret Service

Her Majesty’s Secret Service, or M16 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 M16 was not formally acknowledged until 1994 — which goes a long way toward understanding the modus operandi of this government agency. Initially, the bureau was set up to control secret intelligence operations overseas, particularly concentrating on Imperial Germany’s activities.

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.
