A machine that can read aloud; a driverless tractor; a production line without humans; a warehouse that needs no staff. Science-fiction fantasies that have already arrived! The reason is a 1-inch square chip of silicon called a microprocessor. For less than Â£5 it can do the same job as the giant computer of a few years ago. Programmed and linked together, they promise a future that is both sensational and frightening.
Offices, shops and factories are already being made more productive in a way that will cost millions of jobs. Now the chips are down, what are we going to do about it? Must we accept the widespread unemployment to come? Can we survive if we don't? Above all, why is nobody talking about it?

Christian Bonington, CBE painted on location in the Lake District by Alexander Goudie
An American artist once described a portrait as ' a picture in which there is something wrong with the mouth'. A view shared by CHRIS BONINGTON : Is my mouth as cupidish as that? ' he asked the artist. 'No, but a great portrait always contains an element of caricature.' Bonington got his own back by hauling the artist up a crag ' Just to experience the tactile feel of the rock'.
