It's from the late 80's early 90's I saw it on PBS I think. Everyone had a life clock installed at birth.
Everything bought and sold was with time increments. No one went to prison, time was just subtracted. When you ran out you died. I remember an addict begging for time before they died.
I have been looking for this one for years.
