Portrait of Kim Philby from a 1990 Soviet stamp, one of the Cambridge Five.

Five of the most successful spies in history, the Cambridge Five, generate both interest and controversy. The Soviet intelligence offensive against Britain, however, was much greater. This course examines why, how and where Soviet espionage took place and looks at the true nature of Soviet espionage in Britain which operated across all classes and posed a significant threat to the security of this country.
