Michael Parkinson - The Orson Welles Interview (1974)
How much is the prophet shaping the future to fit the prophecy?
"Prescience can be tedious for science-fiction writers. Being proven right about a piece of technology or a trend distracts from the main aim of the work: to show us how we live now. William Gibson knows this as well as anyone."

The Hingham Institute Study Group on Space Warfare
"In 1961, MIT’s lab acquired a Program Data Processor-1. The PDP-1 was about three refrigerators wide—tiny compared to the giant room-spanning computers typical to the ‘60s. Steve Russell, a graduate student working in the lab, fell in love with the machine the moment he saw it.
"Russell gathered his study group together: J. Martin Gaetz, Alan Kotok, Peter Samson, Wayne Wiitanen and Dan Edwards. They called themselves 'The Hingham Institute Study Group on Space Warfare.' This motley group of proto-hackers would create the first video game."

The Ruling Class (1972)
"The Ruling Class is a 1972 British black comedy film. It is an adaptation of Peter Barnes' satirical stage play which tells the story of a paranoid schizophrenic British nobleman (played by Peter O'Toole) who inherits a peerage. The film co-stars Alastair Sim, William Mervyn, Coral Browne, Harry Andrews, Carolyn Seymour, James Villiers and Arthur Lowe. It was produced by Jules Buck and directed by Peter Medak.
"The film is a 'commercial failure [...that] has since become a cult classic'; Peter O'Toole described it as 'a comedy with tragic relief'."

The Air is on Fire, his solo exhibition presented at the Fondation Cartier in 2007, created an element of surprise by combining the most diverse facets of his artistic expression."
