The telephone film was made when mobiles were still large expensive devices, used by a tiny minority of people. No one at the time foresaw their phenomenal growth over the last ten years. The technology is amazingly sophisticated, with every call seemlessly swapping from one transmitter to the next as you move about The social changes have been equally rapid. I still find amazing today to walk down a street, watching people chattering away without any embarrassment A few weeks ago I even saw a woman apparently arguing with herself – I assumed she had mental health problems until I realised she was shouting into a hands free phone.
