Tomorrow's World - 13 May 1982

Kieran Prendiville reports on an aquatic monster robot that takes its inspiration from machines used in deep-sea exploration. Peter Macann tests fake diamonds, Judith Hann investigates artificial blood that can help with transfusions, while other items tell of new computer data encryption, a talking CB radio and a big rubber bag that can transport wine in bulk.

Kieran Prendiville had been a presenter on the BBC's consumer affairs programme 'That's Life' prior to joining the 'Tomorrow's World' team. After leaving 'Tomorrow's World', he turned his hand to scripting episodes of 'The Bill' and 'Boon' before creating Irish romantic drama 'Ballykissangel'.
