Popular Science Program from the BBC
24 August 2005 | by (Coventry, UK) – See all my reviews

In the mid 1960's when Tomorrows World first aired it was one of a kind. Part of its appeal was that it was always transmitted live. This gave viewers the excitement of guessing just which of this weeks studio experiments would fall flat on its face.

Tomorrows World was quite bad at predicting the future. Many of the gadgets shown were never to see the light of day. The main problem with the show was it's lightheartedness. It never went into any depth possible due to time restrictions. It always left the viewer feeling frustrated and lacking.

Each week they would show us 4 or 5 items from science, technology or the medical world and just couldn't do any of the topic justice. A one hour program on EACH would have been more interesting.
