This is a 1949 NBC radio adaptation of George Orwell's classic dystopian nightmare: 1984
The acting may be dated, but the cautionary message remains just as, turn up the sound, dim the lights, and remember... Big Brother is watching you!

War is Peace! Freedom is Slavery! Ignorance is Strength!

This is a 1949 radio adaptation of 1984 starring David Niven. The acting may seem quite quaint by our standards, but the core warning rings through loud and clear.

Propaganda, the fabrication of "truth", the outlawing of dissent, the distortion of reality, endless war... and thought crime, the ability to think for ones own self...

now... turn up the sound, dim the lights... and remember,

Big Brother is watching you!
