The BBC have put a priceless collection of items from Tomorrow's World online. If you've not heard of it, this used to be essential viewing on BBC1. It was a weekly look at science and technology which managed to cover all manner of exciting new developments
without the obligatory dumbing down you get now. I believed it all - computers would do all the work and we'd all play Moog synths in our plastic gardens while holidaying on the moon.
Here's a fantastic banking item for your viewing pleasure -
how developments in computers could change banking - and mean the end of cash or this cracker about
checking stock prices on your home computer. (Note - these only work if you're in the UK - see comment below).
Nice videos. A stationary picture in both and a text "Not available in your area".
Please don't forget that banking is also practised outside the UK, ok?
Ah yes - I wasn't aware that this content would be blocked if you were outside the UK. Odd - you'd think something from the 60s wouldn't be restricted like that. I shall amend my blog post.
