This sounds like confirmation of what Summers and Mangold stated in FOTT many years ago although it will be very interesting to see the programme.  I will check my copy at home to see exactly what they say.  Many thanks for drawing this to our attention Bear.

These British spies sure get credited with a lot, if indeed these stories are true. If they were, it is too bad they couldn't have done more to stop the tragic events in Russia. If only they had known, they could have acted sooner, but no one can see the future. A powerful British influence could have done a lot of good, but staying clandestine didn't help.
