Clever fantasy documentary showing pre-Web visions of hypertext TV, much to learn from here.
11 October 2009 | by danbriSee all my reviews

"Are you tired of linear, non-interactive television, Mr Adams?" For anyone who uses the Web or television and thinks about how either works, this is a wonderful and thoughtful exploration of how things might be. It was created just before the Web brought Internet-based communication into the mainstream, and shows how little the television side of things has progressed since then when compared to the rapid evolution of the Web. Strongly recommended for anyone working on interactive TV,Web-based video or who is concerned for the future of mainstream television. If only it was available on DVD, but then I pity anyone given the job of making interactive extras using current DVD technology. But perhaps it'll show up in the Web officially some day?
