[edit] Information

In 1978 Horizon broadcast a famous programme, Now The Chips Are Down, about the invention of the silicon chip. It predicted the death of the Swiss watch industry, permanent mass unemployment and showcased a new invention called a "word processor" that would see the end of the typing pool. It was a surprisingly negative view and was followed by a debate with a Government minister about what could be done to prevent a terrible future of mass unemployment. Cabinet members watched the programme to find out what the microprocessor was all about. VHS rip from UK Documentary. Has an onscreen dog, adverts edited out. Debate not included.
