    In 1934, four brilliant young men at Cambridge University are recruited to spy for Russia. Fueled by youthful idealism, a passion for social justice, a talent for lying and a hatred for fascism, the four take huge personal risks to pass Britain's biggest secrets to Moscow.

    Guy Burgess - the noisiest spy in the history of espionage, wickedly gifted, full of nerve and verve and drenched in sex and scotch.

    Anthony Blunt - the coolest of them all, he's viciously funny, terrifyingly clever and capable of leading several separate lives at once.

    Kim Philby - The best spy of the lot, becoming head of counter intelligence in MI6, "stopping people like me becoming people like me."

    Donald Maclean - a savagely split personality; warm and funny, then drunk, wild and confessional; two characters in one double agent.

    Across almost 2 years of spying and treachery, despite their personal journeys, the four are bound by their beliefs and their secrets. They know more about each other than their wives or their lovers can ever know. And they are bound by the knowledge that there is one absolute certainty - they stand or fall together.

    Starring four of Britain's most talented young actors, this epic yet intimate drama brings one of the twentieth century's most compelling true stories to exciting new life.
