Storyline

Dr. Emma Porlock and her colleagues, attempting to unlock the secrets of human memory for the Masdon drug empire, get a cryogenically stored 400-year-old human head to project its memories through virtual reality displays. But Porlock and her team are chronically under-funded, and she may have to go around Masdon to a media sleaze merchant to get the money she needs to maintain the project. But an even more complex world of secret police, RON (Reality-Or-Nothing) riots, and murder is going on outside the lab. And the deeper Porlock goes into the frozen memories of the writer Daniel Feeld, the more twisted the labyrinth of intrigue becomes. Written by Kathy Li

Video release info.
1 December 2004 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing both Karaoke and Cold Lazarus a few years ago and recently wished to watch them again.

As it was co-produced by the BBC and Channel 4 they arranged to screen them con-currently across both channels.

I have searched but can not find any information on a video release of them. So I contacted both television companies regarding a possible release but they both replied with the same answer. There are no plans for a commercial release of either and probably will never will be. I can only hope that sometime it the future they'll decide to share such a masterpiece.
