Robert Fuest directs this 1970s sci-fi thriller starring Jon Finch and Jenny Runacre. With Earth and mankind in a state of disarray, drastic remedies are sought by scientists to restore some balance to life. The best hope appears to be a scientific formula known as 'the final programme', devised by the late father of wealthy scientist Jerry Cornelius (Finch), which can create an advanced and immortal human that will hopefully be able to avoid the mistakes made by its less perfect forefathers. Unfortunately for Jerry, the microfilm containing the formula is in the possession of his obnoxious brother Frank (Derrick O'Connor). Can Jerry and the formidable scientist who partners up with him, Miss Brunner (Runacre), retrieve the formula and set the plan in motion?
