The Year of the Sex Olympics Movie Overview

Influenced by concerns about overpopulation, the counterculture of the 1960s and the societal effects of television, the play depicts a world of the future where a small elite control the media, keeping the lower classes docile by serving them an endless diet of lowest common denominator programmes and pornography. The play concentrates on an idea the programme controllers have for a new programme which will follow the trials and tribulations of a group of people left to fend for themselves on a remote island. In this respect, the play is often cited as having anticipated the craze for reality television.

  • Nigel Kneale's play The Year of the Sex Olympics is prophetic but if the original colour episode existed it would been very garish. As it is the black and white drama is dated and rather stilted. Based in a near future where the masses are fed low brow entertainment ranging from custard pie fights to wall to wall pronography.
