|CHILLING VIEW : PEDLER|
SCIENTIST-DOCTOR Kit Pedler, Mr. Doomwatch himself—he is co-creator of the BBC series—has done it again.
Repeating a chilling propensity for producing a fictional programme at the time when real-life facts seem to out-distance fiction, a team has just completed the shooting of a Doomwatch feature film. Where? On location in Cornwall, where the poison drums are being washed up.
Subject? The effect on a small community where the men are poisoned by the contents of dumped drums.
Pedler, 44, said yesterday: "I wish we could put it on general release tomorrow."
Never mind. There will always be another disaster around the corner.
