Anonymous have posted a clip of the above film on their page and it's getting a lot of attention. Maybe we've all took the purple pill?

"It's not a prediction of our current world, it was a social commentary on the world in 1981, which has of course evolved into the world we live in today. All very valid points he raised, but still not a prediction. More of a forecast of our world based on how the world was in 1981."

Very good. Is this the "Findhorn" he is talking about? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Findhorn_Foundation

I don't want to start another thread so will put this here.

EM Forster's The Machine Stops (1909) has people living in cells which they can leave but generally choose not to. They receive messages and communicate through the machine - giving lectures and such. Effectively the internet as it is today but also meeting physical needs. Until it begins to stop working.

It's a short story and a good read but here's the recent 4 extra dramatisation which is ok but I prefer the book tbh as I've reread it several times and have my own ideas how the two main characters should sound.

Available until 26 April, 45 minutes.

Thanks for that link, Frank H.

I've read the book so will listen to the R4 version with interest.

I tried to start watching this but the fact that the main guy is (and therefore has) the voice of the dinosaur out of Toy Story was just too distracting.

OK, I watched it now. Andre must be an HPC'er? And I don't just mean because I occasionally felt an overwhelming desire to punch him in the face.

There'd be no point making this movie now as the idea behind it is now pretty much the backbone of most internet discussion. I can see how it might have been a bit "out there" at the time it was made, however.
