This is currently on the bbc Iplayer and I think is viewable worldwide.

Tommorows world was a weekly science and technology show that kept us all up to date and this episode is a special about the "Race to Mars"

It was interesting to note that the Russians apparently wanted a manned mission to Mars within 15??

It is one year after the challenger disaster.

We have come a long way.

I remember CD's being shown on tommorow's world, and cashpoints.

We really have come a long way and love it when the BBC put's up old science shows.

I watched one from 1982 a while back about home computers that could now be used with a tape recorder to store information. OOOHHHHHHH

Try explaining fast forwarding as opposed to clicking further ahead, my 9 year old looked at me like I was mental when I tried to explain that.

It comes to something when dvd's are a defunct item. My son does not even watch television.

Dragon 32 for me, it was basically a TRS80 but produced in South Wales.

And some Walkmans only had fast forward and no rewind.. you had to turn the tape over..

My I pod has more than 10,000 songs.. lol you would need to have van full of tapes for that many songs

That was posh having a monitor mate.

My 48k speccy was plugged into a black and white TV with a little twirly knob to tune in like on a radio.

It was 2 years later when I got a colour TV to plug it into.

Haha yeah we played Dizzy on my friend's Speccy. The Amstrad had to have a monitor, couldn't work off a TV. To be fair it was a hand me down from family friends. I spent hours on it.
