Synopsis:
With the imminent arrival of the Queen, Britannia Hospital couldn't be any less prepared. With striking workers only allowing patients near to death into the hospital, the kitchen staff refusing to prepare food until union leaders are bought off with promises of O.B.E.'s, and the head surgeon conducting, with public funds, expensive, deranged experiments, like inventing a modern Dr. Frankenstein - there is nothing short of anarchy! With Mick Travis (Malcolm McDowell) hot on their heels as the undercover investigative TV reporter catching all this bedlam on film, this energetic black comedy is a very bleak insight into the wrongs of modern Westernised culture.
