Directed by Simon Langton, produced by Jonathan Powell, it is the television adaptation of the 1979 spy novel Smiley’s People by John le Carré, and the sequel to Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, (missing out the second book in the trilogy The Honourable Schoolboy, which was not filmed for cost reasons). Starring Alec Guinness, Michael Byrne, Anthony Bate and Bernard Hepton, it was first shown in the United Kingdom from 20 September to 25 October 1982, and in the United States beginning on 25 October 1982.

George Smiley is called out of retirement when one of his former assets, an émigré general, is found murdered. In tidying up loose ends for the “Circus”, his former employer, he discovers a clandestine operation run by his nemesis, Karla, for his own personal benefit. Smiley is able to use this irregularity against Karla, forcing him to defect to the West.
