5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most exceptional programs ever to appear on television., 29 Jan. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
John le Carré is one of the finest authors in the English language today. While his genre is the world of spies, his canvas is much larger: how we deceive ourselves while deceiving others. Alec Guinness' portrayal of George Smiley is quite likely one of his finest performances -- nuanced, full of range, self-aware. These videos/DVDs are a gem and while their topic is the now-defunct cold war, their characterizations are as valid today as they were when they were produced.

Best to watch them in order, this being the first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some of the most brilliant claymation ever., 29 Jan. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you know about Wallace And Gromit, you hardly need a review to tell you how clever and fun these videos are. The story lines are complex enough for the most discriminating adult (there are dozens of little bits on newspapers, cereal boxes and so on) while the animated characters hold the attention of nearly any child.
