Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy: 40th Anniversary Screening
+ Q&A with director John Irvin and actor Michael Jayston
Join our special guests as we screen an episode from the groundbreaking spy series.
Dir John Irvin
With Alec Guinness, Michael Jayston, Anthony Bate, George Sewell
Alongside special guests, we celebrate 40 years of this classic British TV series, based on the book by John le Carré. Alec Guinness stars – in a BAFTA-winning role – as British spy George Smiley, who comes out of retirement to hunt down a Russian spy buried deep within MI6. Many years before The Night Manager enthralled us, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy proved itself to be the definitive spy drama.
BBC Studios will be releasing the whole series of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, digitally restored for Blu-ray, on Monday 2 September.
