The Secret Pilgrim
BBC Radio 4 three-part dramatisation by Robert Forrest of John le Carre's classic novel.
Part 1: The Berlin Wall is down, the Cold War is over, but the world's second oldest profession is very much alive. Smiley accepts an invitation to dine at the Sarratt training school with the eager young men and women of the Circus' latest intake; and over coffee and brandy, by flickering firelight, he beguilingly offers them his personal thoughts on espionage past, present and future. In doing so, he prompts Ned, one of his former Circus colleagues and the pilgrim of the book's title, into a searching examination of his own eventful secret life.
