Our grip on reality is shifting

Over the last ten years, technology has transformed almost every aspect of our lives before we've had time to stop and question it. In every home; on every desk; in every palm ‐ a plasma screen; a monitor; a Smartphone a black mirror of our 21st Century existence. Our grip on reality is shifting. We worship at the altars of Google and Apple.

Facebook algorithms know us more intimately than our own parents. We have access to all the information in the world, but no brain space left to absorb anything longer than a 140‐character tweet. Black Mirror is a hybrid of The Twilight Zone and Tales of the Unexpected which taps into our contemporary unease about our modern world.

The stand-alone dramas are sharp, suspenseful, satirical tales with a techno‐paranoia bend all audacious What if' stories: some comic, some shocking but all entirely unlike anything else you've ever seen on television.

Series 1
The National Anthem
A twisted parable for the Twitter age, 'The National Anthem' looks at how information is now disseminated so quickly and public opinion now so loud, powerful and quick to change, that life is very much harder for the rich and supposedly powerful. It's a political thriller in which the fictional Prime Minister Michael Callow (Rory Kinnear) faces a huge and shocking dilemma when Princess Susannah, a much-loved member of the Royal Family, is kidnapped.

Written by Charlie Brooker

The Entire History of You
We find ourselves in an alternate reality where everyone has access to a memory chip style implant which records everything they do, see or hear a sort of Sky Plus for the brain. You need never forget a face, a holiday, a meeting or a night out again ... but is that always such a good thing?

Written by Jesse Armstrong
