Weird, because I tried it from a web browser that had not been set up, so I must have failed. My apologies. It told me I needed to log in, but let me see the video anyway.

That was a year before I was born.

A lot of people these days have never seen the round dial on the phone.

There's a whole series of them on the BBC archives page.    I  think I also posted one on Computers at about the same time.

If you follow their page or subscribe, they have some really interesting gems that come up from time to time. :)

I wonder if there is anything on telly about the early Arpanet/Darpanet. I wonder if there were prophets back then regarding the possibility of an internet or even a public-use one, outside of that handful of universities and the military.

I don't know about TV but the complete history of how the Internet came to be is in the book, "Where Wizards Stay Up Late", obviously there were some "prophets" among their number or we would not be where we are today. Maybe it can all be traced back to commercialisation of the Internet?
