In a future totalitarian state, Romney Wordsworth is a man put on trial for the crime of being obsolete. His occupation as a librarian is a crime punishable by death as the State has eliminated books and literacy. He believes in God, a crime also punishable by death, as the State claims to have proven that there is no God. He is prosecuted by the Chancellor, who announces in front of the assembled court that Wordsworth, in not being an asset to the State, shall be liquidated.

As my good friend Troy the Goblin, who originally spotted the link below, said, ¨there isn’t anything of TV these days that is as poignant as this fifty year episode.¨ Holler if you disagree.
