More about this programme

It is 1966 and "the shape of things to come has arrived in California. The astonishing moon-walking products of its technology remain as science fiction for Britain and Europe. In the far West the wildest dream populates the landscape." So begins this special edition of Panorama, which asks where these developments will lead and who will get to benefit from the impact of the new technologies and their spin-offs.
