Silver Spring, MD - Coinciding with the December 9, 2011 feature film adaptation starring Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight) and Colin Firth (The King's Speech), John le Carre's classic Cold War-era spy drama Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy returns to DVD from British TV on DVD specialist Acorn Media on October 25, 2011. Oscar(R) winner Alec Guinness (Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars, Lawrence of Arabia) delivers the performance of a lifetime in his BAFTA-winning role as George Smiley, a retired spymaster recruited to find a mole in the British intelligence service. Hailed as one of the finest dramas ever made for television, this 1979 BBC miniseries garnered universal critical acclaim for its stellar ensemble cast, literate writing and intricate plots. This repackaged and discounted DVD 3-disc set includes six episodes, along with a 28-min. interview with John le Carre, cast filmographies, production notes, and more ($49.99, www.AcornOnline.com). Acorn Media is also re-releasing its sequel, Smiley's People, on October 25th (6 Episodes, $49.99).

No doubt remains: a mole has infiltrated the Circus, code name for the British Secret Intelligence Service. It can only be one of four men operating at the very highest level. Sidelined agent George Smiley is covertly tapped to root out the mole, a task that requires a painstaking dig through the double-blind world of Cold War-era espionage and his own past. Alec Guinness brilliantly captures the weary heart and steely soul of John le Carre's master spy.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy was nominated for an Emmy(R) for best miniseries and won two BAFTA Awards, including best actor for Guinness. The series also stars Ian Richardson, Michael Aldridge, Joss Ackland, Ian Bannen, Bernard Hepton, Terence Rigby, Michael Jayston, Hywel Bennett, Anthony Bate, and a memorable cameo by Patrick Stewart, who returns in a larger role for the sequel.
