BBCSpot

Mar

2007

During the Cold War, no one did a better job of describing the front lines than British novelist John LeCarré. Read in concert with Ian Fleming’s James Bond books, the reader got a real sense of how spy agencies worked – or didn’t.

For the Global War On Terror the television series appears to be the dramatic medium of choice. Again, the Brits have done it up right. Today’s HotSpot goes to The State Within, a three-part drama that aired recently on BBC America; it’s a top-notch thriller that makes 24 look amateurish and jingoistic.
