As presented to the Vange Amateur Radio Society 29th Oct 2009
Over forty four years ago on the 7th of July (1965) the BBC launched a new show to feature various scientific developments called "Tomorrow's World".
The show was initially intended to run for just six episodes, but the show returned later that year and continued to run for around 38 years.
There have been many presenters associated with the programme, including:
Rarmond Baxter, James Burke, Judith Hann, Michael Rodd, and briefly Carol Vorderman.
