RhoDeo 1814 Nineteen84


In many respects Orwell is ubiquitous and more relevant than ever. His once-visionary keywords have grotesque afterlives: Big Brother is a TV franchise to make celebrities of nobodies and Room 101 a light-entertainment show on BBC2 currently hosted by Frank Skinner for celebrities to witter about stuff that gets their goat. Meanwhile, Orwellian is the second-most-overused literary-generated adjective (after Kafkaesque). Orwell is the go-to thinker to account for our present woes – even though he is 68 years dead. Which, in the Newspeak of 1984, is doubleplusgood. ......'N Joy

BBC dramatisation of George Orwell's post-modern classic, published in 1949, concerning what the world may look like in 1984.

Winston Smith works for the Ministry of Truth. Sick and separated from his wife, he lives alone in a one-room flat in Victory Mansions in London, chief city of Airstrip One. Big Brother stares out from every poster, the Thought Police uncover every act of betrayal. When Winston finds love, he discovers that life does not have to be dull and deadening, and awakens to new possibilities.

Dramatised for radio by Jonathan Holloway, with Christopher Eccleston as Winston Smith, Pippa Nixon as Julia, and Tim Piggot-Smith as O’Brien.
