My Father the Spy - Ieva Lesinska

As a young woman, Ieva Lešinska discovered that her father was a spy.

She was faced with an agonising choice - betray her father, or leave her mother, friends and homeland of Soviet Latvia behind forever.

A film has now been made about her experience.

Ieva tells her story as part of the Secrets and Lies series on Outlook, BBC World Service.
