About this show

Howard and Janet Shirley live an average, humdrum life in an average Northern town in England. But Howard has an anything-but-average talent: a photographic memory that he uses to win a TV quiz show.

With his winnings, he and Janet travel the world in style, seeing everything they can. But upon their return, a disillusioned Howard makes a sinister proposition to Janet.

Adapted from Anthony Burgess' (author of 'A Clockwork Orange') 1961 novel, this darkly comic story is a hilarious and provocative condemnation of culture and the modern world.
