Little Atoms podcast 461: Neil Wood's Good Cop, Bad War

Life inside Britain's biggest drug gangs 

Neil Woods was an undercover cop whose brief was to infiltrate Britain’s most dangerous drug gangs. Starting out in the early 90s and making the rules up as he went, Neil was at the forefront of police surveillance.
