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.

Strong memory
14 February 2015 | by edwardcooperSee all my reviews

Like the first reviewer I have a very strong memory of this episode. The cast was excellent. Everything was for sale in a "near future" version of Britain. It seemed that everyone was cheerful, but sad, like they knew that something had gone horribly wrong. There was a nurse who could not make ends meet simply working for the NHS, so she had to earn extra money by doing extra-curricula activities. Schooling of children seemed to have become a kind of indoctrination into the ways of Mamon. I want to see it again to compare how close the writer got to the truth of Britain today. I remember it was very funny, yet chilling and worrying. Who has a copy? There must be one out there somewhere. Maybe the writer Barry Pilton has a copy. There is very little information out there about this work.
