I don't use BASIC...
As I mentioned, I am only going to be talking about my extensions to the language, designed to keep it relevant and competitive in the 21st Century. If you're not a BASIC programmer with a reasonable knowledge of BBC BASIC 5 it's not going to mean a lot I fear.
I am suffering from 'cognitive decline' and depression. If you have a comment about the style or tone of this message please report it to the moderators by clicking the exclamation mark icon, rather than complaining on the public forum.

Here's the video of Mark Moxon's excellent talk entitled "Explaining Elite" which covers the outstanding work Mark put into documenting and commenting the source code for the BBC Micro cassette version of Elite.

Very interesting presentation. I didn't think I was going to understand a word of it, but it was pitched at just the right level for me.

"Explaining Elite" was really interesting - thanks to Mark for presenting and to everyone involved in ABUG for making them available online.
