A BBC Radio 4 dramatisation of John le Carré's fourth novel, starring Simon Russell Beale as Smiley and Piotr Baumann as Fred Leiser.

When word reaches 'The Department' - an ailing section of British intelligence - that Soviet missiles are being installed close to the West German border, it seems the perfect opportunity to show Control and Smiley, their rivals over at the Circus, that The Department still has value.

Former spy Fred Leiser is lured back from retirement to investigate, and manages to cross the border into East Germany in a dangerous night-time operation. But the world has changed since The Department's glory days during the Second World War. The harsh realities of the Cold War now prevail, and there is no place for heroes....

With a distinguished cast including Ian McDiarmid and Philip Jackson, this compelling dramatisation perfectly captures the atmosphere of le Carré's chilling novel of deception and betrayal. Download and start listening now!

    " A side-lined military arm of British intelligence learns of a possible new Russian base behind the Iron Curtain. They decide to send in a Pole, now living in England, who worked as a spy during World War II to investigate. Smiley is only peripherally involved, lending what support he is allowed to by Control, and then cleaning up the mess. Another sad le Carre. "
