An early 80s kids show set in the not too distant future, starring the late, great Mike Reid of EastEnders fame. Noah's Castle had a superb piece of synthesiser into music and the plot revolved around a shortage of food and rampant inflation (a pair of kids shoes were for sale at £380!), food hoarding being a criminal offence.
Episodes focused around how living in this new UK with is almost military junta government affected the main characters lives. Mike Reids character had a sub-plot throughout, with him leading a kind of revolution against the new regime in the UK. He bribes someone with a promise of swiss francs if they reveal where one of the other main characters is hoarding their supplies. He's also constantly trying to get people to sell their goods at more realistic prices which people can afford. Oh, the bribe is fake too!
