Good to see the interview with Jan. I went to high school with Jan and we were part of a small community of BBC-micro and later Archimedes users who met regularly. In later years, I haven't had much contact with Jan, but I agree with him that playing around with BBC Basic taught me a lot that I have used later. One of the programs (the planet generator) I offer for download on my homepage ([link]) started out as a short Basic graphics program on my A310, but has been through many generations of updates (and a port to C) since. It should compile under RISC OS, but I haven't tried to do so with recent versions.
