Interesting early insight into the world of the internet.
When I first saw this program on its first broadcast, I had never even heard the word "Internet" before. Computers were, as far as I was concerned, items which were to be used alone. This program opened my eyes.
Within its confines it discusses the ideas of hyper-linking, animated icons and an on-screen "buddy" Tom who helps to guide the progress of the action, all of which were not only very new concepts at the time, but also not particularly widespread.
While some of the concepts discussed in the program are outlandish and still unused today - and still more of them died a rapid death on their first inception at the beginning of the multi-media age, many of them have since become invaluable.
