How the ‘unadulterated horror’ of Peter Cushing’s Nineteen Eighty-Four broke the BBC

  • “Wife dies as she watches,” wrote the Daily Express in December 1954. Mrs Beryl Mirfin of Herne Bay (a “local beauty queen of 1936”) had keeled over, struck down by a heart attack, while watching the BBC’s Sunday evening teleplay of Nineteen Eighty-Four, adapted from the George Orwell book and starring Peter Cushing. It was perhaps the most sensational, damning headline amidst a furore of controversy over the teleplay.
