The BBC has added content from Tomorrow's World to its online BBC Archive. Clips from the programmes, as well as some full-length episodes, are now available to view, for free, online.
Beginning in 1965, the BBC's flagship science programme ran for nearly 40 years. "Its mix of quirky film reports and live experiments examined the changing state of current technology and put new inventions to the test" says the BBC.
About the online archive, the BBC says: "In this collection, we witness a change in how people thought of the future and chart the rise and rise of the computer. Through a selection of items and full programmes from the archives, we remember some of the presenters who became household names, such as Raymond Baxter, James Burke, Judith Hann and many more".
Clips include Europe's first home computer terminal, an "experimental cordless mobile phone", a snooker-playing robot, the Moog synthesiser and an "automated office of the future" which no doubt exactly predicts how we all do our daily work now.
