Stalin’s Englishman

Performed on Sun 1 Oct


Presented by Clive Conway Productions

The lives of Guy Burgess with Andrew Lownie

Guy Burgess is the most important, complex and interesting of The Cambridge Spies – immortalised in plays such as Alan Bennett’s ‘An Englishman Abroad’ and Julian Mitchell’s 'Another Country’ - yet there has never been a proper biography of him - until now.

In Stalin’s Englishman, Andrew Lownie presents a completely new picture of Guy Burgess. Drawing on thirty years of research in archives around the world (including recently released files on Burgess from the National Archives), close connections with the Intelligence Community in Britain and the US, hitherto secret files and interviews with over a hundred people who knew Burgess, most of whom have never spoken before.
