After sitting through two minutes of "Just The Two of Us" when some has been muso is paired with some "never was" celebrity to sing a couple of songs it's nice to see the beed is bringing back something that might be worth watching.

I couldn't find it listed on BBC one for Monday, I assume it is going to be part of some other show, if I am reading the report correctly, if so, which one guys, come on, don't hide it away.
 
awww I thought you meant the test card.
I can remember playing Lego on Saturday mornings whilst watching that card waiting for something to come on. I used to consider the girl in the photo a big (older) girl back then and the clown used to disturb me.

Did you ever catch the prog "where are they now"... or something like that. It caused quite reaction when people realised the girl was all grown up.

Tomorrow's World was a good prog, I wouldn't mind seeing the original repeated either.
 
A lot of people suffer from Clown-phobia. at least two women I worked with both suffered from it and were happy tp speak about it. I'd never heard of it before that.
 
But Tommorrow's world was sooooo dumbed down. :( The fun bit was when they did a 'look back' at their comments on a new technology like betamax 10 years later. The girl in the catsuit was the best period.
At college the TV room was always packed for TW. Was it because we were a strong science college, or because Top of the Pops followed it?

Ah, yes... Maggi Philbin.
 
It wasn't Maggie in the catsuit. But bringing her back isn't exactly going to inspire the younger viewer.
I wonder if this is a response to the recent reports about UK not producing enough engineers/scientists - TW was always the best they could come up with as a program for teenage techies.
Click online on News24 is the nearest equivalent at the moment; the computer orientation of this fitting the age.
