Love, power, money, ghosts of empire, conspiracies, artificial intelligence – and You.

An emotional history of the modern world by Adam Curtis.

‘We are living through strange days. Across Britain, Europe and America, societies have become split and polarised. There is anger at the inequality and the ever growing corruption – and a widespread distrust of the elites. Into this has come the pandemic that has brutally dramatised those divisions. But depsite the chaos, there is paralysis – a sense that no one knows how to escape from this.

“Can’t Get You Out of My Head” tells how we got to this place. And why both those in power – and we – find it so difficult to move on. At its heart is the strange story of what happened when people’s inner feelings got mixed up with power in the age of individualism. How the hopes and dreams and uncertainties inside people’s minds met the decaying forces of old power in Britain, America, Russia and China. What resulted was a block not just in the society – but also inside our own heads – that stops us imagining anything else than this.’
