Tomorrow's World Returns to Teach Kids About Science

By Gary Cutlack on at

The BBC is bringing back its teatime science brand Tomorrow's World, although we won't get to see Howard Stableford experimenting with graphene, self-driving cars or wanking machines. The hallowed TV science name is being used to head up a strand of educational programmes that'll appear on TV and in a handful of iPlayer exclusives.

The idea is to create a varied range of science, medical and technology programmes, then band them all together under the TW brand. Stephen Hawking is doing a thing on the development of space travel, plus there will be easily consumable list programmes like 10 Things You Need To Know About The Future, astronaut training documentaries and numerous other interesting things that will hopefully get the kids excited about buying soldering irons and perhaps one day building a wanking machine that'll make them rich.

People of a certain age all have a favourite memory of Tomorrow's World, and yours is most probably this one about the Information Superhighway, upon which we sit and eat sandwiches all day today, from back in 1994:

The broadcaster's director general Tony Hall said: "The campaign will connect audiences with the brightest minds and institutions in science and technology, producing more than 40 hours of television, a range of programmes across our radio networks, a series of podcasts, and digital offerings, made in collaboration with partners, including the Science Museum Group, Wellcome, The Open University and the Royal Society."
