Description: Set in post-nuclear-holocaust England, where a handful of bizarre characters struggle on with their lives in the ruins, amongst endless heaps of ash, piles of broken crockery and brick, muddy plains, and heaps of dentures and old boots. Patriotically singing "God Save Mrs. Etheyl Shroake, Long Live Mrs. Etheyl Shroake", they wander through this surrealistic landscape, forever being warned by the police to "keep moving", and prone to the occasional mutation into a parrot, cupboard, or even, yes, a bed sitting room with "No Wogs" scrawled in the grime on it's windows.

"The title of Richard Lester’s post-apocalyptic black comedy, The Bed Sitting Room, refers not to a place but a person. Specifically, Lord Fortnum (Ralph Richardson), who fears the nuclear fallout from the shortest war in history (which lasted two minutes and 28 seconds) is mutating him into the titular apartment.
