1. The Creed Of Slaves
Hard hitting series set in a future Britain run by a right wing government, using secret police called the PCD, public control department.
Edward Woodward as Jim Kyle, once in with the establishment, now a journalist on an underground newspaper and a thorn in the government's side.
Robert Lang as Herbert Skardon head of the PCD and Barbara Kellerman as Delly Lomas, a senior PCD Controller. There is a slight love interest between Kyle and Lomas.
In the first episode Kyle is also running an illegal emigration service, as it now illegal to leave Britain. A dissident group smuggle people out inside containers in ferries and other vessels.
Dr Vickers ( Donald Gee), has a sick child and has applied to leave through normal channels to save his child's life ,needing treatment in the U.S. In desperation he contacts Kyle after PCD thugs ransack his home.
Kyle has learnt that the government has bought ex stately homes and are going to turn them into Adult Re-education Centres. He has a contact, known only as Faceless, who we don't see except through the darkened glass window of his car, who tells him known headshrinkers, experts in interrogation are to run these centres, which will be torture centres.
A first episode full of intrigue as the PCD realise they have a mole in their midst.
