Storyline

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.
