It’s not Efrem Zimbalist Jr. in a sharp gray suit selflessly defending good. Neither is it J. Edgar Hoover in a strapless evening gown engaging in paranoid wiretapping. After years of cajoling, British journalist Diarmuid Jeffreys was allowed inside the ugly monolith at 10th and Pennsylvania Avenue and discovered that today’s FBI is maybe a bit of both. The results of his unprecedented access is both a book, The Bureau: Inside the Modern FBI, and a four-part PBS series, Inside the FBI. Jeffreys will discuss what goes on behind all those dark shades at 6 p.m. at the Museum of Natural History’s Baird Auditorium, 10th & Constitution Ave. NW. $15. (202) 357-3030. (DN)
