BBC TV George Orwell’s 1984 (1954)

This is one mans alarmed vision of the future.  A future he thought with such dangerous ease be brought about. Atomic war, famine, revolution; the collapse of a civilization.  This in 1984 is London, city of the state of oceania.  The production proved to be hugely controversial, with questions asked in Parliament and many viewer complaints over its supposed subversive nature and horrific content.


Animal Farm (1954)

Animal Farm is a 1955 British animated film by Halas and Batchelor, based on the book of the same name by George Orwell. It was the first British animated feature released worldwide, though not the first British animated feature ever made. It can, however, be said to be the first British animated feature film on general release. The film, especially the ending, does not follow the book closely.
