Storyline

A bomb, delivered in a suitcase, goes off inside the house of an Israeli attaché in West Germany. A team of Israelis seek to put an end to the increasing number of bombings, all of which are masterfully thought out by an elusive Palestinian. The Israelis identify an eccentric English actress and manage to turn her into one of their agents, with whose help she brilliantly wins the confidence of the Palestinian network until she is accepted as one of their own.

Shots of the reel to reel tape recorder, supposedly recording, had the device in 'play' mode , not record mode. In record mode the play/record selector turns a further 30 degrees. The 'tapes' stacked on top of the filing cabinet are 9 track half inch reel to reel tapes , not quarter inch audio tapes. See more »

John Le Carre
25 November 2018 | by bef1991See all my reviews

I'm baffled by some of the low ratings on this series. It's an outstanding story brought to life with great acting and directing. It's the quintessential spy movie that contains intrigue, fear, and psychological espionage. I was glad to see that the violence was placed strategically through the series rather than the typical gratuitous and monotonous onslaught of "action" movies. I'd highly recommend it if you like a more complex and subtle spy thriller.
