On Video: Prof Steve Furber on 8-bit Acorn days and beyond:

Hi Element14 and others ... Thanks for the kind words regarding the interview. Steve is indeed a great guy and time is of a premium, but there's always a possibility of a more indepth interview on a specific topic in the future. This is my first real attempt at a proper interview and was worried how it would turn out, so to hear the positive comments is very encouraging. The next interview is with Chris Turner, again of BBC Micro fame, which will be filmed next week and put on line in about a month. Remember all this time and effort costs money, so feel free to click the 'donate' button on the page where the video is !!! :-) Cheers! Jason

On Watch the trailer of BBC's Acorn versus Sinclair history docu-drama:

I have been heavily involved with this film and from the limited amount of edited footage that I've seen, I can assure you it'll be good! It's a lighthearted portrail of these two companies rivalry to dominate the home computer market of the 80's but it's also a story about the personal rivalry between Sinclair and Curry. It really captures the atmosphere of the era, not to mention the fashion !!!
