The Truth Behind The Front

Published on 15th February 2016 by

An old 1997 Cook Report feature in which Roger Cook’s team infiltrate the far right in the United Kingdom and manage to convince senior figure Nick Griffin, later to find fame as the leader of the British Nationalist Party, that they are members of the French National Front.

Griffin confides in them his plans to merge the National Front with the British Nationalist Party (BNP) and to infiltrate UKIP to destroy them. The team also manage to capture Griffin denying the holocaust on film. This isn’t the only time the BBC have managed to infiltrate the far right and gain access to Nick Griffin, they did the same again in 2004 and the result was the documentary The Secret Agent: BNP Exposed.
