TV 016: Bird Of Prey - Dave Greenslade

When this originally aired - 1982 - I thought it was one of the coldest programmes ever.
Time has not changed my opinion.

Bird Of Prey stars Richard Griffiths as a civil servant who unwittingly stumbles into a combination of rogue intelligence, espionage and conspiracy. While the series makes for exciting viewing, the general harshness and unfeeling nature of the majority of the cast make for extremely uncomfortable viewing.

Life is cheap seems to be the selfish mantra here.

The theme was composed by Dave Greenslade and aptly complements the computer / electronics setting.

Comments and feedback are welcome.
