This week's programme in the series on Man and Science Today. Ever since the first landships arrived at the front line in 1916, disguised as water cisterns or ' tanks,' they have played a dominant part in land warfare.
In their 50-year history from tin-pot adolescence to computerised old age, tanks have demonstrated how military thinking often lags a whole generation behind technology. It took 20 years for the Army to become convinced that tanks had outmoded the cavalry and another 20 to get its design priorities straight.
With film never before seen on television, tonight's Horizon follows this 50-year history up to the present-a present in which the British Army may have an obsolete weapon on its hands without realising it.
