Harry Palmer: The Ipcress File to air Tuesdays on 7

Seven will air Harry Palmer: The Ipcress File next week.

The Ipcress File is a cinematic rollercoaster of twists and turns set in the 1960s amid the highly charged atmosphere of the Cold War as it rages between the West and East.

At the height of the Cold War, ex-soldier and convicted thief Harry Palmer is recruited to an unorthodox British spy unit whose boss, Dalby, wants his help to retrieve a missing scientist. Working alongside cool, ambitious agent Jean, Harry’s journey will take him to the wrong side of Berlin, the risky hedonism of Beirut and the blinding light of a Pacific H-bomb test – before one step too many lands him an unwitting role in a violent political conspiracy.

The cast includes Joe Cole, Lucy Boynton and Tom Hollander and consists of 6 episodes.

Harry Palmer: The Ipcress File premieres Tuesday, August 9th at 9:10pm, on Channel 7.
