This talk by Stewart Purvis focuses on the Soviet spies that operated from the Isokon Building and its surroundings in the 1930s.
Purvis is the co-author of ‘Guy Burgess,The Spy Who Knew Everyone’. Researching the book in MI5 files he discovered how often KGB spies and recruiters lived in NW3 and has turned his research into a guided walk 'The Hampstead Spies’ . In this talk he will focus on how two separate Soviet intelligence networks operated from Lawn Road in the 1930s and 1940s. Stewart is a former Editor-in-Chief of ITN, Ofcom regulator and Professor at Oxford and City Universities.
