BBC: History of Home Computing Special

Let’s get thoroughly British! What what. Digital Planet, BBC’s technology podcast walks through the National Museum of Computing at Bletchley Park (Home to code-cracking Station-X during WWII), taking a simultaneous trip down memory lane discussing the general history of home computing. The podcast also talks to “Pixelh8” a chip-tune composer who has put together “Obsolete?” ‘composed using some of the oldest and rarest computers in the world such as the WWII code-breaking machine Colossus Mark 2 Rebuild’.
