The first was in an episode of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (1979) [See: Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy: Smiley Sets a Trap (1979)] and the second and final appearance was in the telemovie A Murder of Quality (1991). Ackland appeared in each type of television adaptation of a John le Carré novel, both a telemovie and a miniseries. The two television productions were made and first broadcast around a dozen years apart.


He performed (with Denholm Elliott) the first gay kiss seen on a West End stage in John Mortimer's play "Bermondsey" (1971).
