"A smashing thriller" --The New York Times "Exhilarating" --The Washington Post
With ALEC GUINNESS as George Smiley
"One of the most madly atmospheric and enjoyably literate films ever done for television" --The Washington Post
No doubt remains: a mole has infiltrated the Circus, code name for the British Secret Intelligence Service. It can only be one of four men operating at the very highest level. Sidelined agent George Smiley is covertly tapped to root out the mole, a task that requires a painstaking dig through the double-blind world of Cold War-era espionage and his own past.

Also starring Ian Richardson, Michael Aldridge, Joss Ackland, Ian Bannen, Bernard Hepton, Terence Rigby, Michael Jayston, Hywel Bennett, and Anthony Bate.
