Storyline

Ministry of Defence worker Joseph Guilfoyle and journalist Robert McBride are jointly charged with offences under the Official Secrets Act. The Prosecution claim that Guilfoyle removed a file from the Huckstone Edge research centre where he worked and passed it to McBride who then published details in the radical magazine "The Outsider". They claim that McBride is a communist agent working for Polish intelligence. Both men assert their innocence and argue they were solely motivated by their unhappiness at what they saw as harmful research at the centre including serious psychological damage to research subject and soldier Louis Tucker.
