      Audience Member Excellent for its time and the oppressive atmosphere of the production comes through loud and clear today Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Originally broadcast on the BBC in December 1954, Nineteen Eighty-Four is a made-for-TV movie based on the book 1984 by George Orwell. Like the book, this movie explores the libertarian theme of the individual versus a collectivist state that aims to eliminate individuality and conform its subjects to rigidly authoritarian standards. Because of the "subversive" nature and "horrific" content of this teleplay, the broadcast proved to be rather controversial for viewers in the 1950s. Nevertheless, according to a poll conducted by the British Film Institute, this teleplay was one of the 100 greatest British television programmes of the 20th century. The second live performance of the teleplay, recorded on the 16th of December, is the only surviving record of the performance.
