Culture Corner with John Morrison, hosted by Raina Douris

These days computers are everywhere, but back in 1981, when Kraftwerk released their album Computer World, the idea of home computing and personal tech was something novel and exciting to explore. John Morrison is back with another edition of our series The Culture Corner – today he’ll take you into the matrix to explore Kraftwerk’s Computer World which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year… why it was important back then – and why it’s still important now.
