I stumbled across this little gem:

The Computer Programme (11th Jan 1982)

It's well worth watching if you get the time, many of their predictions have come true.

I was a teenager at the time and remember watching these programs.


Very good nostalgia. I miss the 80s sometimes, especially the new world of home computers and typing in computer games from magazines and all that stuff.

I'm pretty sure I must have watched this. Things like that and Horizon were my favourite types of programs, still are in many ways.

Good find  :thumbsup:


  The first computer I used was at Northeastern University, it used vacuum tubes.  Punched cards were fed in, back in the early seventies, we were taught Fortran and I still miss the go to statement.  Since the computer told you if there was an error in your programing I thought it was great.
Anyways a nice video.
