Tomorrow's World - Yesterday...

Recommended Posts

I found this clip:  BBC Science Programme 'Tomorrow's World' from 1965

Raymond Baxter, presenting, says 'in the future' a girl's ear-rings will be 'not just ear-rings but tiny radio receivers. Light programme in one ear, Third programme in the other, every taste catered for.' Well, he wasn't all that far off, except that the BBC radio channels 'Light programme' and 'Third programme' are long gone, and our wireless earbuds can stream any audio content from the vast resources of Spotify or whatever. At the time, however, it must have sounded far-fetched!
