    It's not, the article states that the BBC is having a Tomorrow's World season - a collection a programs looking at the future of technology and humanity.

    IIRC it started recently, that 'Britain's Greatest Invention' on BBC Two a few days ago was part of it.

    Where's my flying car, b***** liars.

    Remember when they showed off the compact disc. Smeared it with jam and it still played. What happened with the design then I don't know. A few greasy prints and they jump in my experience.
    Loved the show as a kid though, and I'd love to see it come back.

    Modern mass produced discs use most of the correction just fighting production level errors - the one they tested would be more like the equivalent of a direct cut vinyl LP, produced to the highest standards

    Raymond Baxter, loathed by the BBC loved by the audience. So they sacked him, the programme went downhill from then on.

    One of the features that sticks in my mind was ZETA (zero energy thermonuclear assembly). This was a process that was going to change seawater into 'unlimited' electricity at negligible cost. Never saw the light of day.

    Loved it also, they seemed to have dumbed down all tv to the detriment of our youth

    Wish they did bring back the programme. Showed off some cool stuff.

    The fella that invented a thermal material called starlite which was demonstrated on tomorrows world took his technology to his grave starlite
    The tests showed, among other things, that a thin piece of Starlite wouldn’t burn even when subjected to temperatures as high as 10,000°C—that’s hotter than the surface of the sun.

    What about the bloke who coated a power drill with some concoction and held onto it when dropped in a tank of water.

    This is some interesting stuff. It could have saved NASA billions, even if the guy still had 51%

    All the past presenters must have not been involved in Operation Yewtree.

    Ban the BBC!
