    Thank you for putting these videos together and introducing a rather complex structure of the British Intelligence infrastructure in a very digestible manner. It is an excellent add-on building block after the Intelligence Course and especially significant augmentation to Mark Lowenthall ‘s Intelligence Attack book in which he covers this issue as well.

      I agree. It was a great addition to the reading that was presented in a different mode that made things more understandable and able to absorb.
