Not really Beeb related but a fantastic reimagining of an 8-bit classic.

This one might be interesting to simoni if he hasn't already seen it: Catching up with Domesday, Andy Finney (Wuthering Bytes 2016). Much of the information in the talk can be found at the presenter's The BBC Domesday Project page.

Yes. I always thought his level of sarcasm would be a perfect fit for The Register. He now lives in San Francisco and is their US editor - https://twitter.com/diodesign

However for added confusion, if you look at old ElReg articles (pre-2011ish) by Chris Williams, it is a different one!

It's still only got 117 views. A nice companion is the BBC's original broadcast about the Domesday whatnots: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UZBNbWq5DKQ

Plus Stephen Fry in WHAT THEY DON'T TELL YOU WHEN THEY SELL YOU A COMPUTER: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=65UR5tX5xB8

Teething troubles, 1986-style. By the end, note the pending automated stocks computers which caused the 1987 market crash!

From 1985, Thames TV's Database program, showing off a Beeb running some extreme accessibility software (eye movement input device, £300), here
https://youtu.be/16NwJwAmbcs?t=1m41s
and another Beeb hooked up to a £300 RH Electronics Image Processing System
https://youtu.be/16NwJwAmbcs?t=15m50s
which is presumably the same device described here as a Video Digitiser:
https://www.beebmaster.co.uk/CheeseWedges/VideoDig.html
(Light pen also on display in this segment)

Another Beeb spotted in a later segment about Revs, demoed by race driver David Hunt, at the time sponsored by Acornsoft, here:

Then a bit with Geoff Crammond talking about writing the simulation. And then a quick mention of Olivetti's takeover of Acorn.

Hat tip Alex Taylor on Google plus.

https://youtu.be/Bjwq22gSwfE remarkable in that we don't get many videos for the beeb.
