Subscribers joined us for an exclusive evening with historian and columnist and associate editor, The Times, Ben Macintyre as he discussed his new book The Spy and the Traitor.

As a senior KGB officer, Oleg Gordievsky’s story is one of international espionage, adventure and escape. For more than a decade he had supplied his British spymasters with a stream of priceless secrets from deep within the Soviet Union. Very few spies change history but Oleg cracked open what happened in the Soviet Union at a critical time during the Cold War.
