The Pigeon Tunnel: trailer

Portrait of the master of espionage fiction, the late John le Carré, includes his last-ever interview.

A trailer has been released for upcoming documentary, The Pigeon Tunnel, coming to Apple TV+ in October.

The portrait of the master of espionage fiction, the late John le Carré, by director Errol Morris includes his last-ever interview.

In “The Pigeon Tunnel,” Morris pulls back the curtain on the storied life and career of former British spy David Cornwell—better known as John le Carré, author of such classic espionage novels as “The Spy Who Came in from the Cold,” “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” and “The Constant Gardener.”

Set against the turbulent backdrop of the Cold War leading into present day, the film spans six decades as le Carré delivers his final and most candid interview, punctuated with rare archival footage and dramatised vignettes. “The Pigeon Tunnel” is a deeply human and engaging exploration of le Carré’s extraordinary journey and the paper-thin membrane between fact and fiction.

“The Pigeon Tunnel” is produced by Fourth Floor Production’s Errol Morris and The Ink Factory’s Dominic Crossley-Holland, Steven Hathaway, Simon Cornwell and Stephen Cornwell, and executive produced by Hossein Amino, P.J. van Sandwijk, Michael Lesslie, Joe Tsai, Arthur Wang, Michele Wolkoff and Katherine Butler.

Friday, 20 October on Apple TV+
