John le Carré's made-for-television spy thriller, based on his best-selling novel, stunned British audiences when it aired in the late 1970s and earned critical acclaim. Finally in video form, this complex, cerebral tale explores the arcane work of intelligence officer George Smiley, brilliantly portrayed by the late Sir Alec Guinness. Europe is still in the icy grip of the Cold War as spies and counterspies wend their way through a world of treachery and deceit. Even romantic relations are suspect; Sian Phillips as Smiley's promiscuous wife, Annie, lends lurid allure to the proceedings. 5-1/2 hours on 3 cassettes.
