If is a new docu-drama series from the BBC dedicated to “scenerio planning.” Episodes aired so far include:

If… the lights go out
If… things don’t get better
If… the generations fall out
If… women ruled the world
If… we don’t stop eating

The editor had this to say:

We’re not trying to predict the future, we’re war gaming the future, working out what – based on current trends, technological developments and the decisions of today’s politicians – our world might be like in five, 10 or 20 years time.
