Lurkio,

Thanks for posting this link. Was interesting to listen too.

Was surprised to hear it was Australian. Being an Aussie myself I can vouch for a lot of schools having econet after econet of networks of BBCs. Weren't so popular in people's homes however.

Scott.

Whatever happened to "an Econet in every home"?

THIS IS THE BBC MICRO

In this episode, Kingy is joined by Vic from Ten Pence Arcade Podcast to go over this loved but less spoken about 8-bit home computer.

The lads go over their own personal experiences of the system and go through their chosen list of favourite games.

Why not play along as they chat about beeb games - I didn't know you can still buy Granny's Garden!

Aah yes, the pleasing doom of every old computer which is resuscitated for pleasure and pique - a nice deck of games.

A good podcast archive here. The shows could have a dash more emphasis on whatever other than games but I really enjoy the housework with these.

It is probably worth leaving a reply or thumbs up to encourage them to do the A..Z they mentioned.
