  • Time Shift The Year of the Sex Olympics


Set in a future where the world is dominated and run by television. Language has become almost redundant and all `tensions' - love, war, hate and loyalty have been removed. There are gluttony programmes to put people off food and pornography programmes to put them off sex. There is art-sex and sports-sex and this is the year of the sex Olympics. For those that want no part of this TV world, there is only one way out, to become a programme themselves. A small group go to live on an island, and are televised twenty-four hours a day as the LIVE LIFE SHOW, a great ratings success.
