THE NIGHT MANAGER

The Night Manager ep 6 final.

10 INT. LONDON. FCO. JOINT STEERING COMMITTEE. DAY. 10

We are right in the middle of the joint steering committee

review into Limpet, a small Whitehall chamber lined with

history and power.

DROMGOOLE is there, with PALFREY, who is looking pale. With

GALT. Other INTELLIGENCE MANDARINS.

And BARBARA VANDON.

ANGELA BURR is there, alone. Very alone.

And convening the meeting is the PERMANENT SECRETARY herself.

PERMANENT SECRETARY

Aside from the money wasted, and

the embarrassment to our American

friends...

BARBARA VANDON acknowledges the apology.

PERMANENT SECRETARY (CONT’D)

... the debacle at the Turkish

Syrian border has put us back five

years in terms of intelligence

sourcing with Syria and the Middle

East. I’m extending the meeting so

we can explore the reasons why the

operation went ahead with such

corrupted intelligence, and what

lessons can be learnt to ensure

this never happens again.

Later:
BURR is giving evidence.

PERMANENT SECRETARY (CONT’D)

What led you to believe that

British arms were being exported

under the counter through

Tradepass?

BURR:

I was shown fake MOD end-user

certificates for seven different

arms companies. UK and US.

DROMGOOLE:

Do you mean these?
