Storyline

In the future (1999), the UK is subdivided into two regions by barbed wire and border patrols. Northern Britain is cold, bleak and impoverished, while sunny South Britain is a place of relative luxury. When Lord Tewkesbury, the owner of rich conglomerate, decides his son Giles needs more real-life experience, he arranged for Giles to work under an assumed name. Unfortunately, this results in Giles being sent to North Britain to do menial labor, while previously impoverished Gavin is transferred to sunny South Britain. Written by Mike Konczewski

this one slipped between the stools, but it was worth seeing
11 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

call me awkward, but i liked this. it was one of those programmes that no-one seems to talk about, and you begin to wonder if it really existed. It had a political angle that was satirical and pretty insightful about the future. also it had a vibrant video colour quality which i always like. believe it or not it was written by the same people responsible for the bbc series 'birds of a feather' - just goes to show that everyone has at least one good book in them.
