Show Description
1984 - The book by George Orwell "Big Brother is Watching You" "Now, I've had a thesis for a long time, for what it's worth, that almost anything that comes into being, that is an eventual evil, is always hailed as a new discovery in good." JS A story about a major city that has 24 hour a day, automatic, television surveillance so the police can see what's going on. "You know there is a peculiar, undeniable, fascination that you feel for observing other people at a distance" JS Shep tells about his friend Jerry who has a color TV camera set up on his roof and can zoom in and pan across rooftops blocks away. And with sound!
