Oh, sure. TV movies and series are definitely allowed. The very first challenge was Twin Peaks.

Gah! Now I'm really at a disadvantage since I will rarely watch a TV movie. Not that it matters since I've been drawing a complete blank on the latest entries by you and RUR.

The first picture is when the single mom family first arrived to "Ben Thomas'" house and they learned that he had given his house to them...great scene.

That's it. Almost a double dip. Review: Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (1979).

Patrick Stewart is "Karla", Smiley's opposite number for the Soviets. He has no speaking lines in this or the following miniseries.

I thought she looked a bit like Sophia Myles in that shot, but it is indeed Kate Winslet. Again.

Another musical challenge, probably another obscure one.

The artist has no IMDB credit, although he does appear in the IMDB soundtrack listing for at least one film. The film is well-known, but you get just a bar or two of the music.

The attachment is a 30-second mp3 file, zipped to accommodate forum software.

Name the artist, song, or movie.
