BBC Four will broadcast a one-off live 90 minute special episode of Tomorrow’s World later this month.
Tomorrow’s World Live: For One Night Only will be hosted by Maggie Philbin and Howard Stableford.
The programme will be broadcast live from Pacific Quay, Glasgow. It will look back at some of the technology featured in the original series as well as testing new, cutting-edge technologies.
Cassian Harrison, channel editor, BBC Four, said: “Tomorrow’s World stands as one of the BBC’s most celebrated programmes. It introduced generations to the cutting edge of new technology with wit, warmth and (sometimes unintentional) humour.
“I’m thrilled that BBC Four is bringing it back for a once-only live special, to remind us all how far we’ve come and to explore where we might still go – and I’m also looking forward to using the best of present-day technology to create an interactive evening that the original producers could only have dreamt of.”
