No problem, I was looking for it on the Sky app when I read the post!

It's part of a night of animation themed programmes.

I notice there is a 1995 episode on the iPlayer under the BBC Collections brand, it's a special for the Space Shuttle Atlantis' first docking with Mir.

That wasn't the last theme. This was the last theme, when the show was given a last ditch attempt to fix flagging ratings and return the show to being live. I think you can say it sounds strangely familiar.

BBC Four just shown a repeat of Tomorrows World from 2002 showing the making of the movie Spiderman as part of the Animation night. And it used these titles.

They did look quite good in upscaled HD.

It was also hosted by the unknown Katie Knapman and also Howard Stableford was still making appearances at this time. According to IMDB, this was Katie's only edition of Tomorrows World.

She was a regular presenter of the programme in its last couple of years, as a Genome search shows: https://genome.ch.bbc.co.uk/search/0/20?order=asc&q=%22katie+knapman%22+%22tomorrow's+world%22#search


Yes - she wasn't that unknown. imdb, like Wikipedia, is only as good as the people who update it... BBC Genome is definitely a better research tool for BBC presenters.

Surprised Howard Stableford was involved - I'd assumed he went entirely at the Snow/Forrester revamp.
Conversely looking at YouTube (where there are a surprising amount of full episodes from the 90s) it looks like Philippa was doing reports as early as January 1996, just 18 months after leaving Children's BBC.

I'm not sure why it's surprising. Howard is golden-age Tomorrow's World, second only to Judith Hann in the length of his stint.

They would hardly have gone with the most recent presenting line-up, given how ill-received that was.

Edit: d'oh!

I'm talking about the 2002 repeat on BBC4 this weekend!
