About this Event:

Britain does not do torture. At least, that is the official line. Award-winning Guardian Journalist Ian Cobain argues, however, that the evidence is irrefutable. When there is a potential threat to national security, the gloves come off. Cobain draws on previously unseen official documents and the accounts of witnesses and experts to uncover a secret and shocking record of torture. The story stretches from the Second World War to the War on Terror via Kenya and Northern Ireland. Cobain says that Britain has systematically turned to torture, turning a blind eye and bending the law, while all the time issuing denials.
