Hay 25 – The Way We Live Now 2

Hay Festival 2012, 
In this second conversation about our big anniversary project the panel discuss two of the 25 Questions:

25 years ago, the whole world lived in fear of an aids pandemic, the Berlin wall divided east and Western Europe, China and Latin America were considered part of the developing world and less than 1% of the world’s population used mobile phones or computers. What changes will we see to the way we live now in 25 years time?
