SCREENING OF ‘OFFICIAL SECRETS’

Savilian and Former Chairman, Rear Admiral Nicholas Wilkinson, is being briefly but crucially portrayed in a surprisingly good upcoming movie called ‘Official Secrets’.

It is the tale of the idealistic GCHQ analyst, Katherine Gun (played by Keira Knightley), who tried to stop the US/UK invasion of Iraq by leaking attempts by both governments to fix a UN Resolution legalising the operation. As D-Notice Secretary, Nick Wilkinson gave the nod to publishing the story, as being a political not a security matter. 

Martin Bright, the former Observer journalist who broke the story, is offering the Club a preview.

‘Official Secrets’ will be introduced by Nick Wilkinson who will also answer any questions afterwards about what really caused government to drop prosecution.
