Description

5th June: Gill Bennett on Spies, Lies and Disinformation

Gill Bennett OBE is a leading authority on secret intelligence in the UK. Formerly Chief Historian of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Senior Editor of the FCO’s official history of post-war foreign policy, she has worked closely with twelve Foreign Secretaries under six Prime Ministers, from Edward Heath to Tony Blair.

In 1988, commissioned by then Foreign Secretary Robin Cook, Gill was granted full access to UK intelligence archives to investigate the historic case of the ‘Zinoviev letter’ used by opponents of Ramsay MacDonald to stir up a ‘red scare’ in the British media. Her 2018 book The Zinoviev Letter: The Conspiracy that Never Dies brings the investigation up to date, and was listed as one of The Telegraph’s History Books of The Year.

In a lecture informed by a lifetime’s insider knowledge, Gill discusses current and historic espionage techniques and points up the resonance of a 1920s dirty tricks campaign to our own ‘post-truth’ society.
