Silver Spring, MD - An intricate drama hailed as one of the finest ever made for television, John le Carre's classic Cold War-era spy drama Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy debuts on Blu-ray from Acorn Media on April 24, 2012, featuring an exclusive new interview with director John Irvin. Oscar(R) winner Alec Guinness (Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars, Lawrence of Arabia) leads an all-star ensemble cast with 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. This 1979 BBC miniseries garnered universal critical acclaim for its stellar ensemble cast, literate writing and intricate plots. The Blu-ray debut coincides with the home video release of the recent film adaptation starring Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight), which received Oscar(R) nominations for best screenplay and best actor. This Blu-ray 2-disc set includes six episodes, along with an exclusive 29-min. interview with director John Irvin, 27-min. interview with John le Carre, deleted scenes, subtitles, and more ($59.99, www.AcornOnline.com). Acorn Media previously re-released Tinker and Smiley's People in October 2011 as DVD 3-Disc Sets ($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.

Bonus Features: Exclusive interview with director John Irvin (29 min.), deleted scenes (11 min.), John le Carre interview (27 min.), production notes, glossary of main characters and terms, and le Carre biography and booklist

Street: April 24, 2012 SRP: $59.99
