The secrecy surrounding the Hess affair is not restricted to Britain. I am the producer of a forthcoming Dutch documentary on the affair and we are finding that files and records all over Europe have been "weeded" by civil servants.

Sir Maurice Oldfield, former head of MI6, knew this when he smuggled a "most secret" 1941 file out of Whitehall and passed it to historians who sent it abroad for safety just before he died. We will show this file in our film.
