1984

Winston Smith: [voice-over] April the 4th, 1984. To the past, or to the future. To an age when thought is free. From the Age of Big Brother, from the Age of the Thought Police,
from a dead man… greetings.

    1. Here’s the whole of the BBC’s infamous 1954 live tv broacast of 1984, adapted by Nigel Kneale. It caused outrage at the time due to its disturbing nature (allegedly someone died of shock watching it) and questions were asked in parliament. Everything was smoothed over when the Queen said she’d watched it and liked it. Great cast! Peter Cushing, Donald Pleasence and André Morell.

    2. And to play us out, here’s the Eurythmics doing part of their ill advised soundtrack to Radford’s 1984. (To be fair, they’d been duped by the producers) I like the track on its own but sticking this on for commercial reasons instead of the original orchestral score was a mistake. Radford hated it.
