4.0 out of 5 stars Original far better than remake, 10 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After watching the 2011 movie "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" I was confused. The movie was nothing like Le Carre's books. I then purchased the 1979 combined BBC DVD series "Tinker, tailor, Soldier, Spy" and "Smiley's People". Each series had seven episodes. They were simply wonderful and so much more like the novel. Sir Alec Guinness is priceless as the enigmatic George Smiley. Even though the series are 33 years old, they have lost nothing in telling a good suspenseful story of Le Carre's tales of the Cold War period.
