From the BBC’s archive, in this 1969 program James Burke experiences the automated office of the future. In this compilation of reports from a longer programme, James Burke (pictured above) becomes an executive in a futuristic office where the role of a secretary has been usurped by an automated robot. Derek Cooper also reports on a new process for manufacturing micro-electronic crystal lights and visits a South Dakota laboratory deep underground where scientists are collecting information about the sun.
