Great Britain, 1990. The population is now governed by an increasingly corrupt bureaucracy headed by the Home Secretary and backed by the tyrannical Public Control Department (PCD), who have done away with the rights of the individual and maintain control through ID cards, rationing, censorship and electronic/audio/physical surveillance. Free speech is forbidden. The rule of law no longer protects the weak and defenseless. Emigration is impossible. But escape is not, thanks to rebels like Jim Kyle (Edward Woodward), a journalist and secret dissident who battles the forces of the Establishment, but constantly faces imprisonment or death (or worse) at the hands of the PCD and its ruthless controller Herbert Skardon.

This British series produce in 1977 is called "1990". A short lived series only 16 episodes. It was about how a goverment police force kept the population in a police state. If you ever see this show is on try to watch it. Funny how they thought in the year 1990 England would be a police state. It is now 2002 and nothing like that happened AT LEAST NOT YET HA HA HA!
