This is utterly hilarious.

I recently discovered that "Look Around You", a BBC TWO educational science-themed series from the 1980s1, had on its "Computers" episode a live-action AI Box Experiment, in which Bournemouth, what was at the time Britain's most advanced computer, was assigned to physically escape from a steel cage. For your convenience, I've excerpted the relevant clips from the episode. Watch and see how it turns out!
