The Little Drummer Girl is an espionage drama based on Operation Wrath of God – the Mossad operation to track down and assassinate the perpetrators of the Munich Olympics Massacre.  In this episode I welcome James Oddy back to the podcast to analyse and review the BBC adaptation of the original novel by John le Carré .  We talk about its unusually sympathetic portrait of Palestinian radicals and what le Carré’s position was on whether the intelligence game is actually a force for good in the world. We round off discussing some of our favourite moments in the series.
