The BBC have a uploaded a trailer on the BBC 4 website showing scenes from Micro Men, a drama that "provides an affectionately comic account of the race for home computer supremacy in the 1980s". It was previously titled Syntax Era, but the name was changed after executives feared non-geeks wouldn't get the pun. The programme charts the battle between Acorn and Sinclair, and stars Martin Freeman (The Office) as Acorn co-founder Chris Curry and Alexander Armstrong (Armstrong and Miller) as Sir Clive Sinclair.
