Help with - Late 70's early 80's si fi show

Postby CaptT » Tue Aug 25, 2009 3:27 pm

Hi, Can anybody help me out here?
I'm trying to remember a TV program I saw in the late 70's or early 80's. I believe it was a mini series and all I can remember is that the characters were on a planet and that the women wore a belt with a old fashion phone dial on it. They would dial some number so as not to get pregnant. ha, ha.. some sort of birth control mechanism. Anyhow, I think one of the women dialed the wrong number or something because she got pregnant!
I hope this info helps.. this has been driving me crazy lately.

Welcome to Speculative Vision, CaptT!

I don't remember the show you are talking about. I did some searching around and can't find anything to help, either. Sorry.

The search terms I googled were:

80's science fiction show phone dial contraception, and the same thing for 70's, and various blends of these words, no luck. The closest thing I came to was a story in which the women had visible IUD devices implanted in them, but this didn't match what you were looking for.

Hey Thanks for trying. I did a search as well and couldn't find anything either.
Well I hope someone else remembers something about it. The story was more involved than just the dial thing, but that's what my young perverted mind remembered :Q

It was a 1980 mini series version of Brave New World. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0080468/

I actually remember because I thought the phone dial belt was hysterical so it sticks out in my mind.

Hey Master.. Thanks a lot. That's was it !!
Yea, that phone dial thing was probably the only thing I remember about it as well.
Much appreciated
