British society now needs psychiatrists
10 March 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I loved the Human Jungle with Herbet Lom in the starring role as Doctor Roger Corder. But this programme was before it's time. During the 1960's when this programme was shown, Britain had community's where people talked to each other, people could relate to each other.

But from the 1980's British society started to breakdown, we started to become social and economically divided, we started not getting to really know our neighbours, but instead to worship the materialistic world, we started to need someone to talk to but we did'not even know it.

If The Human Jungle was shown today people would realise that they actually needed someone else to really relate too, because no man is an island, but the 1980's personified individualism as the great ideal.
