An alarmingly prescient vision of the social impact of global warming. Several thousand North Africans migrate to Europe, only to find critical overpopulation there, and mounting racial and nationalistic tensions.  At the time of its production, this was the most expensive BBC made for TV movie of all time.  After it was screened it was overtaken by other world events at the time and its impact perhaps reduced.  It never received a DVD release and has never been repeated on the BBC.  Attending this screening is a rare opportunity to re-visit this important work.
