Codename: Kyril [15]

£4.99

Product description

Among an illustrious cast that includes Joss Ackland, Peter Vaughan, Richard E. Grant and Denholm Elliot, Edward Woodward stars opposite Ian Charleson in a taut and skillfully plotted Cold War thriller.

Thought to be one of the last great made-for television spy series, produced as the Cold War era came to an end, Codename: Kryil offers complex characterisations and an intelligent treatment of the classic espionage theme of trust and betrayal. This compelling, evocative series is adapted by the award-winning John Hopkins - whose previous credits include Smiley's People and Z Cars - and co-produced by Primetime Emmy winner Patrick Dromgoole. This release presents the complete two-part series (usually only seen these days in a radically edited 'TV movie' form), originally screened in 1989.

The KGB has a particularly evasive spy to eliminate: a high-ranking Kremlin traitor who has been leaking crucial secrets to London. Bucharensky, code-name Kyril, is ordered to defect to catch the attention of the of the intelligence services of both East and West, setting himself up as a target and drawing fire from all sides as he makes his way across Europe to London; the object of his mission is to panic the traitor into making a mistake. But waiting in London is Kyril's deadliest enemy: Royston, a KGB mole whose life now depends upon silencing Kyril before he can disclose Royton's identity as a Soviet double agent...
