FUTUREVISION IN BLACK & WHITE - ARTHUR C. CLARKE LOOKS TO THE FUTURE ON HORIZION - BBC-TV - CIRCA 1964
Author, futurist , astronomer and visionary Arthur C. Clarke could see the face of the future, while others had amorphous dreams of mankind's destiny.
From his fertile mind came the notion of communications satellites, the idea for an elevator that would carry voyagers from Earth into space and the avant-garde ,galactic tale of 2001:A SPACE ODYSSEY.
In 1964, in an affable, but astonishing monologue,this renaissance man presaged the technological wonders of the decades to come, on HORIZON , the B&W, BBC-TV science series that was dedicated to exploring the future through the eyes of the finest minds in science and the humanities.
In his 91 years of forward thinking, so many of his predictions met fruition.
Here from the LUCIDL YOU TUBE site, is a prescient preview of the lives we are living , and perhaps wonders yet to come, from Arthur C. Clarke.Enjoy!!!!!!
