London Underground station Clapham Junction this evening

Or something more sinister?

We may never know.

Large parts of the country were without electricity following the power cut, UK Power Networks said, with outages reported in the North West, South West, the Midlands and Wales.

The UK Power Networks tweeted on Friday evening: “We’re aware of a power cut affecting large parts of London and South East.

“We believe this is due to a failure on National Grid’s network, which is affecting our customers.”

A new animation from the PBS Blank On Blank series featuring an excerpt from a 1958 interview with the English novelist Aldous Huxley by Mike Wallace. To wit:

This is Aldous Huxley, a man haunted by a vision of hell on earth. Mr. Huxley wrote Brave New World, a novel that predicted that some day the entire world would live under a frightful dictatorship. Today Mr. Huxley says that his fictional world of horror is probably just around the corner for all of us. In this remarkable interview, Huxley foretells a future when telegenic presidential hopefuls use television to rise to power, technology takes over, drugs grab hold, and frightful dictatorships rule us all.
