"The Year of the Sex Olympics" - Radical Film Series

With introduction by Mike Foster

"This eerily prescient drama is set in a future when the world is dominated and run by television, where language has become almost redundant and all 'tensions' - love, war, hate and loyalty - have been removed.

Overpopulation is a problem, so there are gluttony programmes to put people off food and pornography to put them off sex. There is artsex and sportsex, and now this - the year of the Sex Olympics.

Audience attention begins to wane, however, until TV executive Ugo Priest works on a new concept - a reality-based programme in which a couple is stranded on a bleak island, without the aid of any modern technology, and their efforts to survive filmed 24 hours a day."

Sound familiar? Not bad for a film made in 1968!
