Welcome to Reel Britannia-a very British podcast about very British movies ...with just a hint of professionalism.

Episode 066 – The Ipcress File (1965)

The perfect antidote to Bondmania as Scott and Steven review The Ipcress File. With Michael Caine as the laconic secret agent Harry Palmer set in a world of spies that features more paperwork and freshly ground coffee than fist fights and shoot outs. A classic piece of British cinema from the swinging sixties.

Several leading Western scientists have been kidnapped only to reappear a fews days later. Unfortunately, each scientist has been brainwashed and is now completely useless. The British send Agent Harry Palmer to investigate. Palmer is surprised to be selected for such a mission (considering his past) and believes he has been chosen because he is expendable.

“You didn’t come here to talk about button mushrooms and birds.”
