Aldus Huxley introduces and narrates the classic novel he wrote 25 years earlier. Based in AF 632, six-hundred and 32 years after Ford. In the words of Mr. Huxley himself “Brave New World is a study of the future as it may be unless we are extremely careful. It depicts a society in which man has replaced nature by science, morality by drugs, individuality by total conformity. It is a hideous prospect and yet we seem determined to follow this path of self-destruction. The brave new world need not be our future the choice after all is always in our own hands”. The book is certainly a gripping read and this dramatization is equally enthralling. This is the first part of two half-hour parts, so don’t forget to download the second.
