Geordie Racer and Through the Dragon's Eye

Post by English Invader » Wed Sep 16, 2020 4:01 pm

My childhood memories of the Beeb at primary school are associated with these games but I can't seem to find them anywhere. Neither the BBC Games archive or the Educational Software archive seem to have them.

Anyone know where I can find these?

Reminds me of Geordie Jumpers from BITD.

I remember both of these TV shows - Boris, Morris and Doris?! I hadn't realised there were tie-in BBC Micro games, so thanks for drawing attention to this :)

They were released as part of the Look and Read educational series that were intended to teach reading and viewing comprehension. The TV programmes and the computer games were intended to complement each other. The kids would watch the TV programme and use what they learned from it to solve the puzzles in the game.
