Is this the most prescient four minutes in TV history?


So, here we have a young Maggie Philbin, all Northern vowels and key word stuffing (she says Information Superhighway about 16 times in this short clip), bigging up the potential of “something called the internet” (except she keeps calling it the Information Superhighway).

Bill Clinton had it but John Major didn’t.

That’s America for ya.

Way, way, back in 1994 the t’internet, as we all know and love it today (let’s face it you wouldn’t be reading this without it) was simply a Tomorrow’s World feature.

But Maggie’s on fire predicting almost to a T the impact it could, and has, made.

  1. Very interesting.

    I remember in 1994, a guy in college did a presentation on the “Information Superhighway” – whole class thought he was nuts!

    Btw – I think it is Kate Bellingham, Mark…
