«Foretold the reality show and, in the scramble for greater sensation, its logical outcome»

-BFI Screen Online

The screening will be preceded by a talk from Andy Murray, author of ‘Into the Unknown: The Fantastic Life of Nigel Kneale’, who will explore the genesis of the piece, the ups and downs of its production in 1968, and the power that Kneale’s prophetic, dystopian vision continues to exert today.
