"It is September 14 1988..."
Back in 1963 the BBC broadcast a remarkable film which projected the viewer a quarter of a century into the future. Its aim was to look back at the extraordinary, almost unbelievable, events of those 25 years - wild imaginings like spiralling house prices, vast traffic jams and men walking on the moon. Tonight the present catches up with the future and we can see, for the first time in 25 years, just how right, and wrong, the makers of this amazing film were. After the film two of its original pundits, Kingsley Amis and Professor Stafford Beer and producer, Don Haworth meet again in company with Ludovic Kennedy to compare their predictions with the way things actually turned out.
"This Buoyant programme could be repeated a dozen times and still intrigue, delight and disturb me" Dennis Potter, Daily Herald TV critic, 1963

The Rhino War
The enemy is the poacher, his loot is the rhino's horn - highly prized in the Far East for medicines and aphrodisiacs and, in Arabia, for ornately carved dagger handles. Horns sell for more than E4,000 a pound - and a fully grown one can weigh four pounds. No wonder that the forces of conservation have, so far, been losing the war.
The film focuses on Kenya and Zimbabwe where the battle is at its fiercest. In just 30 years, the population of the black rhino has fallen from over
100,000 to fewer than 4,000. At that rate, one of the world's oldest and most magnificent creatures - he's been here for 45 million years - will be extinct by 1995, exterminated by man. Cameramen JOHN DAVEY MARTYN COLBECK
