Alerted by Dan Hon's post, I watched the BBC Four Computer Night (with documentaries on Tetris, British home computing and games as art) last night. I was fresh and ready to post about it this morning, when I found that Yoz had got there first, making the general point I was going to about the show. I've added my tuppence there (ah, if only I had got round to setting up local mirrors of my comments), but I thought I'd mention a couple of bits here that got lost.
Firstly, the movie that I referred to in the comment that got eaten by Yoz's defanging of my HTML is truly scary, about 13MB big and, in a blatant piece of copying, available here. Hopefully I won't be sued to death. Secondly, I was amazed to see, during the Timeshift programme about British home computing, that there was an IBM PC advert that actually included the BBC Micro logo (along with the Apple and CBM logos) as if they were serious competition. Thirdly, Trigger Happy made a much better book than a half-hour TV show.
