Black and white image of Ian Cobain looking intently at the camera


In The History Thieves, former investigative journalist for The Guardian Ian Cobain uses previously unseen material and rigorous research to demonstrate how successive governments have developed a culture of secrecy in Britain. From unreported wars fought during the 1960s and 70s, to convenient loopholes in the Freedom of Information Act, this event will question what you thought you understood about the workings of the state, and our nation’s culture and past
