The Tip Off
Ep. 60 From the archive: Web of death - part 1
Hi Tip Off Listeners - We are working hard on new episodes for you, and have some more great stories coming up this series. But this week we are taking a dip into our archive.
As the Russian regime is accused of breaking international law and committing untold atrocities in Ukraine, we're re-publishing the first of a two-parter, originally published in 2018. This is the story of how Heidi Blake and her team of journalists at Buzzfeed UK revealed a series of deaths, all on British soil and all linked to Russian actors. These episodes came out just a few weeks before the horrifying news of Novichok poisonings in Salisbury.
So, stay tuned for more stories behind the headlines, and for now, enjoy a classic from our archives.
