TV A.D.A.M. (ITV 1973, Georgina Hale, Mark Jones) Published 3 years ago on June 4, 2016 Early 1970’s scifi drama A.D.A.M. focused on a topic popular amongst 1960’s and 70’s science fiction writers, that of the all powerful computer controlling every aspect of our lives. All very true now of course just took a little bit longer than the visionaries anticipated – and the size of the computer too, in fact your iPhone can probably manage to do all the things ADAM can. At the start of the story, disabled Jean Empson moves into her luxury new home, built by her husband Roger, where every single thing is automated and controlled by A.D.A.M (Automated Domestic Appliance Moniter), programmed to talk ADAM soon begins to develop feelings for Jean and will stop at nothing to protect her. The under-rated Georgina Hale was excellent in the lead and author Dean Koontz used a very, very similar plot for his novel Demon Seed which was turned into a movie with Julie Christie in 1977. production details UK / ITV Network – London Weekend Television / 1×60 minute episode / Broadcast 8 April 1973 Writer: Donald Jonson / Production Design: John Emery / Producer: Verity Lambert / Director: Michael Lindsay-Hogg cast GEORGINA HALE as Jean Empson MARK JONES as Roger Empson RICHARDSON MORGAN as Hanley MADGE RYAN as Jean’s Mother ANTHONY JACKSON as the Voice of A.D.A.M.
