- Program Description
Anthony Blunt, Surveyor of the Queen's Pictures in Buckingham Palace after World War II, was also the Fourth Man in the Burgess / Maclean / Philby spy ring that passed secrets to the Russians before and during World War II. While the Cambridge aesthete investigates a particularly puzzling painting , he in turn is investigated by the M15, the British FBI. Things come to a head when a new government interrogator - the friendly, unpretentious Chubb - is assigned to the case. This true story is dramatized by author Alan Bennett.
