A secret of Jodrell Bank

The Telegraph reports the interesting snippet of news that:
"The giant space telescope at Jodrell Bank was secretly modified to track incoming Soviet nuclear missiles during the Cold War, its creator has disclosed 50 years later."
Read the whole piece but the line that caught my eye was this one:
"But he (Sir Bernard Lovell) added that he had written a full account of his time there (in Russia) which he wishes only to be published after his death."
Now that could be most interesting...
