Undercover: The Spycops

10:30 AM GMT on February 4, 2024

    Undercover: The Spycops - An absorbing and engrossing series looking at undercover policing, its ethics and the long term emotional and mental health impact that being lied and manipulated can cause to those involved.

    Presented by Andy Whittaker, it looks at ‘Mark Stone,’ who over a period of seven years infiltrated a network of left wing climate activists who had planned to shut down a power station in Nottingham. And part of his undercover work, Stone had multiple intimate relationships with several people in the network, who did not know his true identity. This sensitively handled series looks at the implications and consequences.
