Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy - Various - Herkennings Melodie (Vinyl, LP)
Operation Testify was devised by the former head of the Circus, a man known as Controlto learn the identity of a mole working in British intelligence. A Circus operative named Ricki Tarr learns about the existence of the mole and tries to alert his superiors.
Smiley suspects that a Russian spymaster named Karla is behind the scheme. One of these friends is Connie Sachs, a former analyst who was told to forget her suspicions regarding a Russian agent named Polyakov working in London. Sachs also mentions the close relationship between Haydon and Prideaux, suggesting that they were romantic partners while at university together.
Operation Witchcraft involves a group of high-placed Russian sources who are supposedly funneling intelligence through Alleline. Control never trusted Operation Witchcraft, but the quality of the intelligence was enough to secure the top job at the Circus for Alleline.
Smiley deduces that the source of Operation Witchcraft is Polyakov, who meets with one of Alleline, Bland, Esterhase, or Haydon in a secret London house, paid for by the Circus. However, Smiley believes that Operation Witchcraft is a deception.
The Russians pass along a controlled supply of interesting but unthreatening information, while receiving actual important intelligence from the mole. Amanda Award .

Smiley finally returns to the Circus as its new chief. Chronologically, it should be The Honourable Schoolboyhowever in interviews it has been suggested that the team is interested in making an adaptation based on the third and final book. His investigation eventually leads him to his old nemesis, Karla, the Soviet spymaster. He has, in fact, confirmed that the sequel is in development and that he is completely on board.
Going by the characters in the third part of the trilogy, we can also expect Cumberbatch reprise his role as Guillam, along with Dencik as Esterhase.
Finally, Smiley tracks down Prideaux and questions him on Testify. Prideaux tells him Control believed there was a mole in the Circus, and had whittled it down to five men, Alleline TinkerHaydon TailorBland SoldierEsterhase Poormanand Smiley himself BeggarmanSoldier that his orders were to obtain the identity from a defector in Czech intelligence who knew. He tells Smiley he almost didn't make the rendezvous with Max because he noticed he was being tailed, and that when he made it the site to meet with the defector, he was ambushed.
As he attempted to escape, Jim took two bullets to his right shoulder, where they remain. During his captivity, both Polyakov and Karla interrogated him, focussing solely on the extent and status of Control's investigation. The Czech defector was a plant, contrived by Karla to engineer Control's downfall through Testify's failure, and thus protect the mole.
Esterhase, upon arriving to a meeting called by Guillam under a false pretext, is quickly detained. Smiley states that he is aware that Esterhase has been posing as a Russian mole, with Polyakov as his handler, ostensibly in order to provide cover for Merlin's emissary Polyakov. Smiley compels Esterhase into revealing the location of the safe house, through making him realise that not only is there a real Soviet mole embedded in the SIS, but also that Polyakov has not been "turned" to work in British interest pretending to run the "mole" Esterhase, and in fact remains Karla's agent.
Tarr is sent to Paris, where he passes a coded message to Alleline about "information crucial to the well-being of the Service". This triggers an emergency meeting between Gerald and Polyakov at the safe house, where Smiley and Guillam are lying in wait. Haydon is revealed to be the mole. Haydon's interrogation reveals that he had been recruited several decades ago by Karla and became a full-fledged Soviet spy partly for political reasons, partly in frustration at Britain's rapidly declining influence on the world stage, particularly on account of the failings at Suez.
He is expected to be exchanged with the Soviet Union for several of the agents he betrayed, but is killed shortly before he is due to leave England. Although the identity of his killer is not explicitly revealed, it is strongly implied to be Prideaux, due to the method of execution echoing the way he euthanises an injured owl earlier in the book.
Smiley is appointed temporary head of the Circus to deal with the fallout, and is still head at the start of the second book of The Karla TrilogyThe Honourable Schoolboy.
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy employs spy jargon that is presented as the authentic insider-speak of British Intelligence. The television adaptation of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy also uses the term "burrower" for a researcher recruited from a university, a term taken from the novel's immediate sequel The Honourable Schoolboy.
Karla and George Smiley meet while Karla is in prison in Delhi, with Smiley trying to persuade Karla to defect during an interrogation in which Karla gives nothing away. Karla possesses a cigarette lighter given to Smiley by his wife, which he took during Smiley's interrogation of him. In Smiley's Peoplea murder in London sets in motion a chain of events that lead to the defection of Karla; it is implied that without him, Moscow Centre will be considerably weakened.
In a review for The New York Times written upon the novel's release incritic Richard Locke called Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy "fluently written", noting that "it is full of vivid character sketches of secret agents and bureaucrats from all levels of British society, and the dialogue catches their voices well. An article published in in-house Central Intelligence Agency journal Studies in Intelligencepresumably written by agents under pseudonyms,  called it "one of the most enduring renderings of the profession".
However, the idea that a major counter-intelligence operation could Soldier run without the knowledge of counter-intelligence professionals, an allusion to Smiley's investigation progressing in an undetected manner, is deemed an "intellectual stretch". John Powers of NPR has called it the greatest spy story ever told, noting that it "offers the seductive fantasy of entering a secret world, one imagined with alluring richness". In the book, Sarratt is a Circus facility, containing a training school for British spies and a holding centre for persons undergoing debriefing Tailor interrogation or in quarantine.
It was a seven-part serial and was released in September of that year. Ricki Tarr was played by Hywel Bennett.
In the US, syndicated broadcasts and DVD releases compressed the seven-part UK episodes into six,  by shortening scenes and altering the narrative sequence. Notably, Bernard Hepton portrays George Smiley. Nine years earlier, he had portrayed Toby Esterhase in the television adaptation. The producer was Steven Canny. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
