In 1934, four brilliant, but seemingly conventional young men at Cambridge University are recruited to spy for the Soviet Union. Fuelled by youthful idealism, a passion for communism, a talent for lying and a hatred of Hitler and fascism, they began a 20-year career of deceit and treachery.The four do whatever is necessary to further the cause: their own promising careers are discarded and every aspect of their lives becomes a bluff; marriages and passions are destroyed; Enigma codes, Atom bomb details and other top secrets are passed on and cold war spies are murdered. But now, they are inextricably bound together and there is one thing they can never betray - their own secret...

Brilliant series focusing on four friends who became double-agents for Russia and the consequences it had on their lives. Great performances from all four leads - loved it!

High quality drama. A fascinating episode in history; however, this series sometimes plays loose with the apparent facts.

A fine depiction of the real-life story of the 'Cambridge Five', the early days of British-American espionage co-operation, and thought procedures of fine young men who refuse to bow down to fascism and embark on a course that changes their lives forever.

While historically this is an interesting story, it was just too slow.
