The creation of the first Official Secrets Act in 1889 allowed government to veil crucial decisions in secrecy. Ian Cobain (The History Thieves) and Sinclair McKay (The Spies of Winter) look back at the history of GCHQ and explore how its ability to conceal has influenced modern-day politics.

Discussion chaired by journalist Stefan Stern.
