This was a seminal piece of software produced by the Microelectronics in Education Programme (MEP). In its day it was a truly outstanding program and is still valid today with the 'iPad Generation'. It is a pity that it appears to have been 'lost' by teachers in primary schools.
If you don't know the software I suggest you read the pdf in the Docs folder in the attached zip file. Anyone with children will immediately see the value of this program.
It is written entirely in BBC basic, I believe, and so should run on any machine (that is my next project) from the original Beeb right up to the Raspberry Pi. I expect it to run with Richard Russell's excellent BBC basic for Windows so that will open up many more platforms.
BITD this was pushed by the MEP as a free resource to schools so there should be no copyright issues here.
