I bought myself a full set of Insight magazines from 1980 - anyone else remember this? I ask as there is an article on hifi that might give a warm glow of nostalgia to those of us of (or beyond) a certain age - does anyone know how long copyright would last on such a thing?

EDIT - looks like it's 70 years, so I won't be sharing - apologies.

Yes i remember these magazines, ( i had a subscription with the local newsagents ) really loved them, if i'm not mistaken the first edition had articles on how the space shuttle was going to be launched, endoscope's and their future in medicine and strangely an article about breast implants. I recall I had a lot of editions possibly 4 or more binders which had to be ordered separately.. wow blast from the past. 😊👍

Was the house item relating to them being under ground or something on those lines or am I getting confused with my love of The Hobbit and LOTR from that era in my life.

Yes, It always makes me smile when we look back on future forecasts from days gone by, Tomorrows World always comes to mind with their predictions on robots in the home, so way off the mark. But I still found those magazines enthralling and exciting as a child, filling my curious mind with wonder.
