In big industry new ideas are invited to rear their heads so they can be clobbered at once. The idea department of a big firm is a sort of lab for isolating dangerous viruses.

Picnic in Space

Dir: Bruce Bacon 1967 28mins


Picnic in Space is a rare jewel of a film in which McLuhan banters with his long time cohort Harley Parker. The film sees McLuhan expounding on ‘space’ and its properties, while lying in a field somewhere in Canada. Amusing, classic and a period piece of McLuhan ephemera.
