An Englishman Abroad is a 1983 BBC television drama film, based on the true story of a chance meeting of an actress, Coral Browne, with Guy Burgess, a member of the Cambridge spy ring who worked for the Soviet Union whilst with MI6. The production was written by Alan Bennett and directed by John Schlesinger; Browne stars as herself. Filmed in Glasgow and Dundee, the setting is Moscow in 1958, Burgess had fled to the city following MI6 detection of his treason.

Both Browne and Bates were winners of the BAFTA awards for acting for their roles in this production.
