Telecommunications in the 1990s (as predicted from 30 years earlier)

This short (8 minutes) film made in the 1960s suggests what telecommunications might be like in the 1990s (ie when you were very young!)  Made by the Post Office’s Research Station at Dollis Hill just as post(mail) was splitting from electronic communications (BT)both were still Governement owned/operated.  Missed mobile ‘phones but got “Answerphones” (?voice mail), fax and (?)skype?  Pity about the industrial and interior design tho’!  Mic
