The fourth of six programmes. Face Values
In the design-obsessed 80s cultures were turned into commodities. The world became a shop and culture became global as television spectaculars promoted the decade's 'we are the world'
Author Stephen Heath argues that this'designer multiculturalism - cultures arranged in pretty patterns on our screens' smoothes over the real problems we face. As the film shifts from the Design Museum to the Rushdie affair, from the international art world to a Sikh wedding in Wolverhampton,
Stephen Heath suggests that in the 90s we will need a fresh approach to human freedom.
