Long before the advent of reality television, this film wondered about the dark direction in which the TV industry was heading, and the unsettling appetite of audiences for the intimate details of peoples' lives - and deaths. Set in a dystopian future, this is the story of Roddy, who is contracted to record the final days of Katherine's life as she succumbs to a terminal illness. Roddy has been surgically fitted with a camera that will record everything he sees so Katherine is unaware that her privacy has been invaded in this way, and is to be televised. Eerily prophetic and thought-provoking.
