Tomorrow’s World

It's Thursday night, it's 7pm… it's Tomorrow's World! This long-running science series aimed to give viewers a taste of exciting new inventions that would transform our lives, and was often broadcast live. Hosts during this classic 1970s era included Raymond Baxter and Michael Rodd, given a rousing intro by the terrific Johnny Dankworth theme tune. I love the way each letter of the logo is animated from different objects – flaming R's, frying O's, pill-popping S's and toasting T's; these titles take me right back to my daddy's knee!
