Towards Tomorrow

Delia wrote Towards Tomorrow for a TV series of the same name.

Delia's "Towards Tomorrow" is, like her earlier "Time On Our Hands", a perfect subversion of a classic brave-new-world dynamism phrase. The "tomorrow" I imagine here is the antithesis of that which the BBC in the 60s made much play of promoting to its audience; instead, it could easily be some kind of dystopia, a state of decay or de-evolution.[1]
