The History of TV-am
First shown in BBC2's evening of TV Hell last year, this is an insiders' account of the troubled history of what turned out to be Britain's most commercially successful television company. Launched on a wave of high ideals in 1983, it suffered boardroom power struggles and near financial collapse but was rescued first by the arrival of Greg Dyke , then by Australian TV magnate Bruce Gyngell. Ironically, with its troubles seemingly behind it, TV-am lost its franchise last year. Raymond Snoddy reports, with cameo appearances by Loyd Grossman and Roland Rat. Producer Renee Knight
The Electronic Frontier
In the 15 years since the first personal computer, the industry has grown faster than any in history. A software baron, Bill Gates of Microsoft, is one of America's richest men.
But the key to future profits is something portable and friendly - and linked to a stream of digital information. From the computer in our pocket we will tap into everything from electronic mail to airline schedules, from electronic pets to digital reproductions of the paintings in the Louvre. This film asks where Gates and his competitors are leading the consumer. Do we need endless information - or do they just need to sell it to us?
