MI5 and MI6 are short terms for the domestic intelligence and foreign intelligence agencies. They are accompanied bei the GCHQ (Government Communications Headquarters) and the DI (Defence_Intelligence).

MI5/6 is notoriously known to use journalists cover for their agents. From self testimony it reads: “Intelligence officers are members of intelligence services. They will be highly trained in espionage techniques and the use of agents. They may operate openly, declaring themselves as representatives of foreign intelligence services to their host nation, or covertly under the cover of other official positions such as diplomatic staff or trade delegates. Some intelligence officers may operate under non-official cover to conceal the fact that they work for an intelligence service - posing as a business person, student or journalist for example. In some cases they may operate in “deep cover” under false names and nationalities. Such spies are dubbed “illegals” because they operate without any of the protections offered by diplomatic immunity.”

BBC is also known for working with MI5: The BBC worked directly with MI5 to bar left-wing journalists and prevent a left-wing British government which indeed has a long history

see also GRIN: Critical examination of the view that mainstream journalists are too close to the intelligence and security services. “The number of journalists who had links to spies in the past sixty years is substantial. Richard Keeble, in his book Ethics for Journalists, fills three pages with the names of British journalists from George Orwell to Dominic Lawson, who were linked to the intelligence services (2008:275-277).”

see also: newstatesman on journalists relations with the security bodies. “Milton Bearden…warns that journalists’ relationships with spooks leave much to be desired. “The energy in the UK seems to be devoted to keeping the media at bay,” Bearden says. “In the US, our style has been to spin them into submission. You don’t want to get starry-eyed about the way we do business in Langley, Virginia.” He says he knows of cases where reporters have been taken into agents’ confidence - and spun pure disinformation, no less pernicious for being on the record. “There is a structural problem here. The interests of journalists and those of secret intelligence agencies just don’t always coincide.” ”
