The Complete George Smiley Radio Dramas Synopsis

The complete collection of acclaimed BBC Radio dramas based on John le Carre's bestselling novels, starring Simon Russell Beale as George Smiley.

With a star cast including Kenneth Cranham, Eleanor Bron, Brian Cox, Ian MacDiarmid, Anna Chancellor, Hugh Bonneville and Lindsay Duncan, these enthralling dramatisations perfectly capture the atmosphere of le Carre's taut, thrilling spy novels.

Call for the Dead is the first Smiley novel, which sees him looking into an apparent suicide only to uncover a murderous conspiracy;

A Murder of Quality finds Smiley investigating a murder in a private school;

The Spy Who Came in from the Cold introduces Alec Leamas, a British intelligence officer whose East Berlin network is in tatters;

The Looking Glass War features former spy Fred Leiser, lured back from retirement to investigate a claim that Soviet missiles are being installed close to the West German border;

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is the first book in the Karla trilogy, and sees Smiley searching for a mole who has infiltrated the Circus;

The Honourable Schoolboy sees Smiley determined to destroy his nemesis, Karla, and his spy networks;

Smiley's People finds George Smiley called out of retirement to exorcise some Cold War ghosts from his clandestine past;

The Secret Pilgrim sees Smiley invited to dine with the eager new recruits at the Circus. He offers them his thoughts on espionage and, in doing so, prompts a former colleague to re-examine his own eventful secret life.

'A radio triumph...Simon Russell Beale's pitch-perfect master spy' - "Financial Times".

Duration: 19 hours.
