1984 (1954)

Blazing Cat Fur has saved BBC Television's 1954 live production of George Orwell's 1984 from the memory hole.

Featuring Peter Cushing as Winston Smith. Screenplay by Quatermass creator, Nigel Kneale.

Nineteen Eighty-Four is a British television adaptation of the novel of the same name by George Orwell, originally broadcast on BBC Television in December 1954. The production proved to be hugely controversial, with questions asked in Parliament and many viewer complaints over its supposed subversive nature and horrific content.

Sadly, today's audience is less likely to complain about the subversive nature and horrific content of reality.
