Synth Britannia too.
the Electric Revolution season, featuring:
- a docudrama about Sir Clive Sinclair
- "the world of one ordinary British family turned upside-down as their home is "renovated" to the standard of a typical house in 1970 – the dawn of the digital age – and then fast-forwarded at the rate of a year per day through the technological revolution of the Seventies, Eighties and Nineties"
- "a quirky look at what mobile phones might think of their owners' embarrassing calls and ill-advised texts"
- a documentary fronted by Simon Armitage
- "the epic story behind the silicon chip's inventor"
- CHARLIE BROOKER'S GAMESWIPE
although I can't understand why more of their (outstanding) documentaries don't get shown on BBC2, as they must cost a fair whack. It's what the BBC should be about, not funding massive presenter salaries.
I read about that Clive Sinclair drama in Edge this month. Really looking forward to it.
