BBC Computer Literacy Project - all shows online now

Recommended Posts

Just watched Ep. 10 of The Computer Programme - fascinating insight into the ridiculous way that banks used to process paperwork, the workforce must have been colossal! Interesting to hear the general musings about automation from the time period as well.

Seeing a trend in The Making of the Micro with Mac and his guest experts. :lol:


Expert: 'Hey Mac, check out this innovative application of our incredible fledgling microcomputer technology!'

Mac: 'That's it? That's a bit crap, isn't it?'

Expert: 'Erm... well... I suppose so. But watch when I press this button!'

Mac: 'Fair enough, not complete crap then. But you could've done this part better.'

Expert: '...'

Mac: 'Thanks Expert. Moving onto... oh FFS, computer games? Where's my agent?'


Still loving going through these. Just watched the part with the hackers on the first live show - perhaps the most polite hackers ever, in fact. Lots of nervous chuckling all round. :D
