“This year marks the 20th anniversary since Children’s BBC began using the familiar format of sitting a presenter behind a live camera in a small continuity suite, dubbed the ‘Broom Cupboard’. Prior to this move in September 1985, and for several years after, the BBC used Acorn kit to produce their broadcast graphics and animations.
For a happy trip down a long memory lane, we caught up with Chris Poole, who produced the early ident graphics using a BBC B and later an Archimedes which ran RISC OS.”
I live in the States, and would love to get my hands on an Acorn. It’s easy to find units in the UK or Australia (from eBay), but does anyone have tips on where Acorns can be found in the U.S?
