Storyline

It is the near future and, thanks to the Industrial age, an environmental catastrophe looms. The public is given gas masks as Toxic Air Alerts increase and it looks like the Earth is slowly dying. The British Government turn over the problem to the services of the big but secret Airzone Corporation. Reporter Al Dunbar investigates and after discovering the solution that Airzone Corp. is planning he dies. TV Weatherman, Arnold Davies, suffered some kind of attack when Al dies and slowly comes to understand that he and Al are somehow connected. Arnold calls in the aid of Oliver Trethewey, Al's mentor, environmental activist Anthony Stanwick and Arnold's own girlfriend to discover what the Airzone is. All five realise that when the Earth is dying from mankind's mistakes - nature will find a way to help itself. Written by Lee Horton <Leeh@tcp.co.uk>

An unlikely group of reporters combine forces to stop a corrupt government from making a deteriorating environment a total disaster.
28 May 2003 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

Sometimes less is more & you have to go back to the basics. Any filmmaker who complains about not having enough money to tell a good story should take a look at some of the work that's gone on @ BBV. No fancy special effects or window dressing, just good old-fashioned characters & story telling to weave a creepy near future faced with a collapsing environment & the evils of overgrown corporations. Each of the former Doctors shines,(especially effective is flip of Colin Baker to nice guy & Peter Davison to abrasive hero), as does a young Alan Cumming, thankfully, an ensemble cast who prove there's no small roles & solid, believe performances can make a viewer forget about the tiniest of budgets. I've seen this about 4 times since it's first release ten years ago & I think it holds up really well as an example that a good story is simply a good story, budget be damned!! Great stuff, Bravo, Nicholas Briggs & co.
