This collection includes two thrilling BBC radio dramas—The Spy Who Came In from the Cold and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy—written by John le Carré, the legendary master of espionage fiction. Both episodes feature a full cast and star Simon Russell Beale as le Carré's most famous spy, George Smiley. In The Spy Who Came In from the Cold, le Carré's breakthrough 1963 spy thriller, an agent, desperate to end his career as a spy during the Cold War, is caught up in a breathlessly perilous assignment to come in from the Cold and re-enter the West. In Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, George Smiley has come out of retirement. Moscow has infiltrated a mole into the Circus and it's more than likely the perpetrator is Karla, his old adversary. And when Smiley is offered the job of catching the mole, it becomes a long and bitter battle of deception and treachery.
