George Smiley is one of the most brilliantly realized characters in British fiction. Bespectacled, tubby, eternally middle-aged and deceptively ordinary, he has a mind like a steel trap and is said to possess the cunning of Satan and the conscience of a virgin. This BBC Radio full cast dramatization of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy , stars Simon Russell Beale as George Smiley. -- Smiley, wrestling with retirement and disillusionment, is summoned to a secret meeting with a member of the cabinet office. Evidence has emerged that the Circus has been infiltrated at the highest level by a Russian agent -- and its more than likely that the perpetrator is Karla, his old adversary. When Smiley is offered the job of catching the mole, it becomes a long and bitter battle of deception and treachery. Find the mole, George. Clean the stables. Do whatever is necessary. Reluctantly Smiley agrees, and so embarks on a dark journey into his past -- a past filled with love, duplicity, and betrayal.
