an odd interesting piece of History
22 September 2018 | by ib011f9545iSee all my reviews

I saw this on BBC back in 1983. It was based on an obscure novel from the 1930s.

The story is partly a 1984 style tale and a comedy. The 1930s cult of air power combined with an idea of what a fascist Britain might have looked like.

I am sure it cost the BBC a fortune but I am equally sure it has never been repeated since 1983.

I would love a dvd of this perhaps combined with other lost one off dramas?
