The episode, titled 'Hated in the Nation', explores what would happen if the honeybee population became extinct and were replaced by Autonomous Drone Insects (ADIs).

The local gallery features 20 minutes into the episode as the HQ of the private technology company that create the ADIs, which targets members of the public through facial recognition.

Each episode of the hit series features a different cast with the likes of Kelly Macdonald (Trainspotting, Nanny McPhee), Fay Marsay (The White Queen, Fresh Meat) and Benedict Wong (State of Play) starring in the series finale.

Each episode of Brooker's show explores themes of the modern age and imagines an uncertain future shaped by new technologies.
