one-off at the wrist

1984

Was this really 30 years ago!? I remember seeing this during the American Superbowl on channel 4 [then still a new station] at a time they still were an exciting broadcaster. Directed by Ridley Scott no less.

Although mired in Thatcher’s Britain, everything seemed possible. Despite computers of only 128K! Whatever happened to that dream?

I was surprised to find out recently that not only were parts of the Nineteen Eighty-Four movie filmed near-by to me but also parts of the original TV film Max Headroom.
