Could you be a spy?

Have you ever thought you could be the next James Bond or Violette Szabo?

Would-be spies are being sought for a new Channel 4 television show being created by Minnow Films. It aims to show the recruitment and training process involved in becoming a spy, and will explore the type of person it takes to serve the country under cover.

The producers are looking for a group of 20 men and women to attempt a course based on elements of the authentic recruitment and training phases of Britain’s intelligence services.

The course will be as close to the real thing as possible, immersing the candidates in a world of psychological pressure and uncertainty.

Discretion is one of the key requirements, and candidates should not tell anyone they have applied.
