Tomorrow’s World: Mobile Phone 13 September 1979 – BBC
From the BBC Archive ‘Tomorrow’s World’ collection: www.bbc.co.uk Michael Rodd makes a call with an experimental cordless mobile phone. It’s 1979 and time for the telephone to go mobile. In this report from a longer programme, Michael Rodd (pictured above) examines a British prototype for a cordless telephone that allows the user to make calls from anywhere. Also included at the end of this item is a rather nice out-take as Rodd also experiences the first mobile wrong number.
