The commuting citizens of Prutopia take steam trains to return home to their low-tech villages after a day of work at the data-base complex. They spend their leisure hours restoring relics from the industrial past, such as textile looms and old steam engines, or baking bread. Their lives are monitored at every turn; their health, their social life, driving habits, cooking, central heating, as well as every functioning detail of their workplace. Paper is rarely seen on their twenty-first century daily round. Their non-commuting neighbours earn a living as craftsmen, working with leather, fine metals, porcelain or plastics. This is one of the lucky communities in the employment belt of Britain 2010. (Bellini 1982:89).
