Spy Kids: Bbc's Blue Peter Children’S Show Collaborates With Mi5

Recommended Posts

Popular BBC children’s television show Blue Peter will team up with intelligence agency MI5 to launch a competition aimed at finding three fledgling spies.

Codenamed “Project Petra,” next month’s competition will see eight children attend a special spy school where they will learn what it takes to become intelligence agents.

They will be tested on key observational and analytical skills over a weekend of “challenges.”

Eight applicants will then be whittled down to the three “CBBC Intelligence Officers,” who will go on an unprecedented tour of MI5’s headquarters in London.

It will be the first time TV cameras have ever been allowed inside the usually impenetrable, top-secret building.

George Orwell 1984 http://nineteeneightyfourgeorgeorwell.blogspot.de/2008/04/children-and-brainwashing.html Children and Brainwashing
In 1984 the party is constantly brainwashing the people of Oceania. They are trying to make them believe that the party is wonderful, that Big Brother is amazing and that everyone should love, and be loyal, only to the party. The way the party brainwashes people is quite effective.
They start young, the spies, the youth leagues, these are all ways for them to get to children, to get them on their side, to turn them into obedient little party members. The Spies reminds me a great deal of the Hitler Youth. They have the same philosophy, grab them when they're young and impressionable, and then stuff them so full of propaganda that they believe what ever you tell them.

You see the effects of this childhood brainwashing in Julia. She has been subjected to the party's propaganda all of her life and in some ways she is far more immune to it than Winston, but in other ways she believes just what they want her to. Julia says that if you follow the important rules, go to the rallies and marches and such, you can break the little rules without worrying too much.

Winston on the other hand, before he met Julia, would just as soon skip his evening at the community centre as go and be an obedient party member. However Julia doesn't seem to have a problem with the way the party changes the past. How really there is no concrete past only a constantly changing present.
She seems to think it is inevitable and nothing particularly important, where as Winston is terrified by it.

There are other reasons for having organizations like the spies. When the party gathers children into groups like the spies they are creating a network of miniature thought police. Once they have been taught to believe the party knows all they are no longer loyal to anyone but them.

Children will willingly denounce their family members to the thought police. That is the ultimate horror to have your own children betray you.

"This is where we intercept people's private communications. Let's see what you parents are up to, shall we?"

Valerie Singleton will be recalled from retirement to show kids how to make listening devices from old fairy liquid bottles and sticky back plastic tape.

You are sounding a bit like Herr Doktor Josef Goebbles.
