BBC Commercial for Household Chef Robot, 1966 [video]


Here's a fake commercial for Mabel the Robot Housemaid from a 1966 episode of the BBC show Tomorrow’s World, which focused on future trends in science and technology: "Unlike human housemaids, Mabel never tires, never grumbles, never takes a day off. She's also a Cordon Bleu chef. She'll cook what you like, the way you like it. The only chef who's equally happy about cooking and washing up."
