The Organization is a very droll allegory about power politics set in a PR division of a multinational company. It was scripted by Philip Mackie, best known probably for his adaptation of Quentin Crisp's memoir The Naked Civil Servant, and is a highly intelligent and insightful series. The quality of direction and of acting Donald Sinden, Peter Egan and Bernard Hepton are particularly memorable is sure throughout. Alas, it's one of those shows that has not yet made the transition to DVD and it's been years since it was last shown on terrestrial TV, as part of Channel Four's admirable but apparently junked policy of reclaiming forgotten masterpieces. It's rather topical though - a clear and very detailed expose of the kind of thinking that goes on at the top. Look out for this on cable highly recommended.
