Stumbled across this and was enthralled
27 April 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The only things i can really remember clearly from this broadcast which was 15 years ago now, is that Douglas Adams and Tom Baker were in it, and there were these cool things called 'micons', movable icons. Anyway this broadcast has stuck with me ever since, i think it basically covered the topics of finding information, being taken from one link to another, and seeing video clips of what you were looking for. Hopefully this will turn up on BBC4 sometime, to show people how the www started out. Douglas Adams did seem to have his finger on the pulse when it came to IT and a enthusiasm for the future of it (IT), and how it can allow people to create and find out for themselves, which he conveyed in his excellent radio 4 series just before he died.
