The Spy Who Loved - Christine Granville

The exams are over and for many 16 year olds this means their first holiday away from their family. Where are they going, who are they going with and what are they telling their parents? Harrowing mobile phone footage of an Afghan women accused of adultery being publicly shot which emerged at the weekend has caused outrage around the world. What's it mean for other women currently in prison? Do you employ a cleaner? Is the role valued and if not how do we change attitudes? Plus the story of Christine Granville, one of the Second World War's most daring female special agents.
