1984 - Big Brother comes to watch us
There has always been talk about how much surveillance there is watching the ordinary man on the street. We now have one of the latest 'talking' cameras being installed into a Worcestershire town. This will enable camera operators to view members of the public - and if they begin to do something undesirable, the operator has a microphone with which the operator can speak to the public. These have, apparently, become quite popular in a number of towns making the public aware that if they are doing anything undesirable from causing a disturbance to dropping litter it will not be tolerated. The new 'talking' camera in Worcestershire will come into operation next month.
