Burgess, Blunt, Philby and Maclean, still ardent communists and working for the KGB, must follow instructions and cover their political leanings. They now have to convince the powers that be that they have outgrown their juvenile leanings towards socialism and become members of the British establishment to become moles on the inside. Philby is sent to Spain to report on the civil war, made to deny any German involvement, and Blunt gains the confidence of the British royal family.

The bombing of Guernica (26 April 1937) was carried out by two German Heinkel He 111s, one Dornier Do 17, eighteen Junkers Ju 52 Behelfsbomber, and three Italian Savoia-Marchetti SM.79 aircraft. Each of these aircraft were single wing medium bombers. The aircraft type depicted in the film is a twin wing (biplane) , possibly a German Bücker Bü 131 "Jungmann" (Young man) which was a 1930s basic training aircraft. See more
