It's 1988, but if much of living in the UK during Margaret Thatcher's third term isn't bad enough, suddenly we are by TV magically transported to what seems to be a fifth, or even sixth installment of the same thing.

Super Stuff, From When Channel 4 Was Magic
4 July 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I'm reviewing this 100% from memory of having seen it once 26 years ago so if I mess up please someone tell me!! Any video/DVD/master copy of it really seems to have gone, not to return...

Which is tragic, because EAW is almost my favourite hour of TV from the eighties. It depicts a Thatcherism gone into its 5th/6th term not merely imaginatively and brutally (video funerals, thudding propaganda leaflets deluging onto housing estates, the cheeky chappie neighbour inviting the leading couple over and charging them for drinks at his home fitted bar...) but also so cheerfully. This show has a big hearty grin; it is not 1984, it is not even Brave New World. It is dystopia with... the bunting all present and correct.

It's darned funny dark comedy, the children intoning 'time is money is profit' and to the devil with all else, and the teachers concretely agreeing. They had a lot of fun making this, and inspiring also to see Jonathan Pryce in something so niftily pulled off and yet (given its lack of any, it would seem, cultural imprint) so clearly small scale.

Find it, Channel 4!! Or if anyone else has a copy, share it, do.
