karohemd: by LJ user gothindulgence (Captain Future)
These clips are from a German TV programme broadcast in 1973 envisioning what living and working in the year 2000 could look like (up to the middle of the second clip, the rest is a rather bleak report on current issues like traffic, pollution, etc.).
Some of the visions aren't too far off (TV phone, home shopping) while others are ridiculous (because pollution has been illegal since 1990, the air is clean).
Some bits are funny and very German (the standardised breakfast FS10-22).
What really made me giggle was that they made no effort to envision futuristic decor or fashion or get rid of glasses or cigarettes.
Even if you don't understand German, watching these should give you an idea.
