Plastic clothes, video phones, vacuum tube emails - step into the heady, high-tech future world of... 1955!

Science Fiction 1935 15 mins


It takes a leap of imagination to get from the electric oven in 1935 to plastic clothes, video phones, vacuum tube emails, and the home cinema by 1955. But the Electrical Development Association was clearly optimistic, sponsoring this not exactly prescient vision of the future. Stick around for the ending to get the full picture, and good luck getting the catchy song out of your head.
