Podcast 250: This is our Everest, Part Twenty – Tomorrow’s World

by | Nov 24, 2020

On today’s This Is Our Everest, Edward and Ian watch an episode of the BBC’s Tomorrow’s World from 1984. Edward is in an especially silly mood for whatever reason but is nevertheless able to provide an update as to the progress of the robot plan to take over the world. Ian, who usually missed most of Tomorrow’s World getting ready to watch Top of the Pops, takes one for the team and watches the lot, potentially risking a seizure to do so.

There’s also some facts about the historical development of picture resolution for television sets and a perfectly serviceable impression of Jeremy Clarkson. Plus! We find out whether it will be holograms or robots who will conquer us all first. You can find out too by watching along here.

Tomorrow’s episode of this podcast sees us trying to come to terms with the last ever episode of The Black & White Minstrel Show. You can watch it through the gaps in your eyes here.
