Show Summary

Futurecast, first aired on Channel 4, April 2000, is a trilogy of sci-fi dramas set in 2012-13. Each episode - "The Kidnap", "The King of Chaos" and "Newborn" - deals with the consequences of technological and scientific advances. "The Kidnap", directed by Bryn Higgins, is about a couple, Louise and Craig Richardson (Paula O'Grady and Gary Sefton), who hire radical healthcare activist, Sepp Kurtz (Adrian Shiller) to hack into the world's most popular news channel to broadcast the trial of a powerful biotechnology boss, Terence Singh (Ranjit Krishnamma), they kidnapped to get the gene therapy needed for Craig's leukaemia. "The King of Chaos" deals with a murdered software mogul, Liam Keller (Danny Webb), who may have created the world's first intelligent software. Who killed him and what were their motives? "Newborn" is concerned with how people react when the internet becomes intelligent. A decision is made to shut it down, but with what consequences? How will this affect the flow of information?
