The Final Programme is a British comedy-thriller from 1973, directed
by Robert Fuest starring Jon Finch, Jenny Runacre and Patrick McGee,
(who is most widely best known for his role as the much victimised writer
Frank Alexander in Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange).
The plot involves a billionaire becoming embroiled in the search for a mysterious
programme which turns out to be the design for a perfect self replicating human being !
Definitely worth a look for some amazing visuals, and for the fashion lovers
among you, the costumes were designed by John Bates and Ossie Clark.
It's also worth noting that the Hair Consultant on the film set was none other
than Leonard as in Leonard of Mayfair..probably most well known for his now
iconic Twiggy Cut which essentially launched her career after the Daily Express
featured it in an article with the opening line "This is the face of '66".
