No, that's Archimedes and the laser (kinda).

This is the opening sequence for my favourite telly programme ever, UFO. It was made in 1969/70 but set in 1980, ten years in the future. Missile-armed space fighters taking off from the Moon, frequent shuttles to and from a base there, jet-powered cars. It all seemed reasonable at the time, but then 1980 was the future!



But I remember talking to a friend at school in 1975 and realising that we were already half-way to the time of this futuristic world. There was no sign yet of any of these things.

OMG, but a glorious '80s future actually did happen; just not quite in the way predicted in '60s!!!! Remember all the tremendous, computer generated cities of neon and fantastical vehicles of light!! Boy do I miss I my '80s light car. What happened to all this technology???
