Best of luck, hopefully Big Ben will actually be chiming the hour again by that time, and hopefully broadcast at 12noon on the BBC World Service!

That brings back memories ;-)

In ye olde days, I was a member of the Big Ben Club - there was a school with a room full of Beebs. Most other schools in my area either did not have a computer room, or were using C64 and the like.

I still have some old Asterisks, plus copies of several Big Ben Club Diskettes ;-)
BBC-B (my first computer, 1983?), Electron (1985, virtually unused)
BBC-B and BBC Master 128 with DataCentres from Mark@RetroClinic (2018, 2019)
Refurb/upgrade projects: BBC-B (2x), BBC Master 128, Electron with Plus1 and Plus3

Maybe you could dig out those Big Ben Club diskettes? They probably have a few hitherto undiscovered programs on them!!
