Smiley's People

 (TV) (1982)

Smiley's People Blu-ray offers decent video and audio in this still overall recommended Blu-ray release

When an aging Russian informant, General Vladimir, walks into a bullet after sending an urgent message to his old handler, George Smiley, the retired head of British Intelligence informally known as "the Circus", the Circus asks Smiley to “tidy things up.” But Smiley hears Vladimir’s message as a call to arms against his nemesis, the Soviet super spy Karla, once again tantalizingly within his grasp.

For more about Smiley's People and the Smiley's People Blu-ray release, see Smiley's People Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Alec Guinness, Eileen Atkins, Bill Paterson, Beryl Reid, Vladek Sheybal, Michael Byrne
Director: Simon Langton

Smiley's People Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Smiley's People was made before British television had fully switched over to film, but like Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, it was shot on 16mm. The source materials used for Acorn Media's 1080i, AVC-encoded Blu-ray presentation are in considerably better shape than those from which the Blu-rays of Tinker Tailor were derived, but they do not appear to have been through the kind of restoration that was done for Brideshead Revisited. Scratches, knicks and speckles are still plentiful, although not to an extent that anyone's viewing experience should be significantly diminished. The image, while stronger than that on Tinker Tailor, is not sharp by anyone's definition, and detail weakens as soon the camera pulls back any distance from its subject. Still, colors are stronger, and the grainy mush that so often obscured the frame in Tinker Tailor is largely absent.

Could a better image be extracted from the existing elements? I have no idea. The image we are seeing today was considered such a vast improvement over the standard of the time that it may just be what was captured. I defer to the technical people who actually know what's on the elements. All I can attest is that, three years after Tinker Tailor, the camera work had considerably improved.


Smiley's People Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

The miniseries' original mono soundtrack is presented as DTS-HD MA 2.0, and it sounds about as good as I imagine it ever will. The dialogue is perfectly clear, and the atmospheric score by Patrick Gowers is effectively reproduced despite a somewhat limited dynamic range.
