Presented by Judith Hann Kieran PrendiviUe , Peter Macann , Maggie Philbin In the season of fantasy, conjuring and magic,
Tomorrow's World explores the world of illusion and perception.
From computer graphics to holograms, our lives are full of tantalising images. So how does science help to produce illusions, and what can we learn from the tricks they play on our senses?
The programme includes a way of conjuring up high definition television pictures on a big screen, how the fantasy of a space ship is created for a new feature film, and how the latest robots can see what they are doing. And there will be a chance for viewers at home to test their colour vision and their powers of perception. Producer MARTIN MORTIMORE

The year 1984 arrived with quite a reputation to live down. But was it really as bad as all that?
Frank Bough and Selina Scott present Review 1984.
It was the year that saw a famine in Ethiopia, a prime minister assassinated in India, Reagan re-elected in America and an attempt to blow up the British Cabinet. Sometimes the lighter moments seemed hard to find. But 1984 was also the year of the Olympic Games, of body-popping on the streets of London, and of a second child for HRH The Princess of Wales and an appearance on Jackanory for her storyteller husband. Frank and Selina look at some of the events and issues of the year through the eyes of the ordinary people who got caught up in them. They talk to a childless woman who has just welcomed her husband's child, born of a surrogate mother. Selina meets a policeman who lost his helmet on a picket-line in April, and speaks to the mayor of a Yorkshire village in trouble with the law.
Frank learns from the cox who crashed the Cambridge boat, that for him, at least, 1984 was not to be such a bad year after all. Videotape editors
