Towards 2000/Beyond 2000

1 9 8 1 – 1 9 8 7 (Australia)

This 30-minute magazine-style science show from the ABC looked at the latest breakthroughs in science and technology (based on the UK show Tomorrow’s World).

Hosts included Sonia Humphrey, Carmel Travers, David Travers, Jeff Watson and Iain Finlay.


The Seven Network took the idea (and quite a few of the people involved in this show) in 1985 and turned it into the very popular 60-minute science series, Beyond 2000. Following its demise on Channel Seven, the show was picked up by Channel Ten from 1993 where it ran until 1999.
