I have been watching Tommorrows World on BBC1 for along time now. Some of the main things which draw me into watching this programme are the facts that is it well presented, well researched and is on in a good prime-time spot, which pleases me considering the fact that it is Science programme. I also find the articles very interesting. They are usually about new items of technology which will somehow help somebody. I am increasingly finding however that these articles are irrelevent, appealing to only a small group of people. However the programme is still interesting, although possibly slightly tedious.
Tomorrow's World is the opposite to Local Heroes in that it deals in the present and future but some principles established in the past have come to fruition in today's modern world. I've been watching Tomorrow's World since the days when only black and white telly was available and the programme was presented by Raymond Baxter, an ex RAF fighter pilot. Over the years presenters like Michael Rodd and Judith Hann have come and gone but the programme stays the same and brings to us a glimpse of the inventions being made and what these innovations could do for the world in the future. Currently presented by Peter Snow (of the swingometer fame) and Philipa Forester they both show an enthusiasm for the things they attempt to explain be it some obscure genetic discovery or the latest in video recording. Whether you're interested in science or not, Tomorrow's World can have you marvelling at what is new and guessing at what might be soon. This is a must see programme for me.
Tomorrow’s world is one of he most interesting programs on the Television at the moment, it manages to be both informative without getting to technical as well as being relevant to modern life. I think that the reason for its longevity is that it has constantly changes with the times, the program we see today bears no resembelance to the show twenty years ago. It also does not try to take itsself too seriously, therefore allowing anybody to watch it and get something out of the program. The two presenters that it currently has in the form of Philipa Forester and Peter Snow are excellent and they have an obvious rapport. They seem able to switch easily from advances in medical Science to the latest Cyber toy with ease meaning that the program flows smoothly. In my View Tomorrow's World is the best Science program on TV at the moment - long may it continue.
Tomorrow's World is a show all about the technology of the future. Lots of different types of technology are featured, such as medical advancements, things to do with computers, things to do with the home, things to do with travel etc. I find the medical things rather boring, and there is usually one medical feature per episode (which is on for half an hour). It is a good general programme though, and is presented very well by Peter or John (can't remember-I'm bad with names!) Snow, Phillipa Forrester and Anya Sitiram.
When my club advertised that there was going to be a trip al; the way up to London for a day to go to the "Tommorows World Live Ezhibiton", i jumped at the chance thinking that it would be like a huge gadget shop. When i got there it was like a huge advertising centre, where all company representitives went to show off their latest products. The attractions were all busy and the shops were very expensive. £1.10 for a can of Coca Cola! Lucky that I had free tickets! There was also a James Bond Exhibition where you could see and sit in vehicles from the films. Overall it was worth a day off work, but I wouldn't do it again.
Tomorrows world is a great programmes with a great presenter in Phillipa. It brings to life and puts into contexts many new invention which may otherwise appear uninteresting and of little relevance. The articles in the programme are presented in away so that we can understand not only with the invention or discovery, but also with the application of that to the real world. The programme is informative and interesting, as well as suitable for a wide range of ages. It is also shown late at night on BBC1 with sign language so it is suitable for the deaf and hard of hearing as well, it is just a shame that it is shown so late at night with this facility.
