The Director of the Government Scientific Research Facility in my film has a role similar to that of George Smiley, who would be familiar to audiences thanks to John Le Carre's TV and film adaptations: he knows what is going on at Government level but is required to be secretive because of the sensitivity of his staff's research. He puts secrecy even before the safety of his staff. In the Cold War period, research took place into chemical weapons and biological warfare, banned after WW1.
