Australia, 1985

Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

The Robots are Coming- More and more jobs are being taken over each year by the robots of the world. Most of the jobs are tedious, but the robots don’t seem to mind. “Energy”- The sun and the wind could supply us with most of our energy needs - pollution free. “Research Into Space”- The Americans and the Russians are showing the world that space has no boundaries but getting up there does present problems from time to time. “Other Changes”- Electronic bagpipes and a hotel room the size of a phone box - they are just two of the changes taking place right now.
