Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy from 1979

Having weighed the new film against the television adaptation from 1979 and found it wanting, I had better show you a glimpse of the version I prefer.

Here are Alec Guinness as George Smiley, Ian Richardson as Bill Haydon and a little bit of a splendidly pompous Michael Aldridge as Percy Alleline. You can buy the whole thing if you like the look of it.
