WINNER OF FOUR BAFTAS, INCLUDING BEST ACTOR AND BEST ACTRESS. FULL RESTORATION FROM ORIGINAL FILM TO BLU-RAY FOR THE FIRST TIME.
Smiley and Karla in the final confrontation. The acclaimed BBC production of John Le Carre’s espionage classic.
The bespectacled spymaster is once more called from retirement to come to the aid of ‘the Circus’ – and he returns with a vengeance. The murder of an emigre Soviet General, who was also a British agent, sends him digging into the past on a twisted trail across Europe that moves, inexorably, towards a final showdown with his old adversary, Karla of Moscow Centre.
