The BBC is bringing back the Tomorrow's World brand to help audiences understand new technologies.
Maggie Philbin worked on the show for eight years
Presenter Maggie Philbin will be offering in-depth analysis on technology stories on TV, radio and the web under the Tomorrow's World banner.
Although the programme - which ran from 1965 to 2003 - will not return, elements such as the logo and title sequence will be revived.
Philbin says using the brand "fits perfectly with technological change".
The 51-year-old, who worked on the programme for eight years, will make her first appearance on BBC One and News 24 on Monday.
Peter Horrocks, head of television news for the BBC, said: "Technological change and its impact on all our lives is one of the big stories of the moment.
"Tomorrow's World was a much-loved programme with a strong and enduring reputation for engaging journalism."
The programme showcased pioneering science as well as inventions that never came into commercial use. Its most famous presenter was Raymond Baxter, who died last year aged 84.
