Back to the future?

Adam Walton follows up the media whirl that surrounded "Back To The Future Day" on 21st October with a discussion about the difficulties of predicting the future.

Joining Adam are Professor Vic Grout from Computing Futures at Glyndwr University in Wrexham, and Dr Tom Crick from Cardiff Metropolitan University. As well as discussing what the Back To The Future sequel got right, we explore some of the omissions from its comic science fiction vision of 2015.
We also hear from students at Glyndwr University who make some predictions about the innovations we might expect to see in the next few decades.
