MI5 spy records released by the National Archives

Glamorous Nazi spies, German invasion plans, a Nobel Prize winner and links to James Bond.

They all feature in files kept by the British spy agency MI5 that were released by the National Archives.

Gordon Corera has been looking into the historic files.
