Micro Men

BBC3 and BBC4 often have some interesting programmes that are easily missed. I remembered to record Micro Men, a dramatisation of the work of Clive Sinclair and Chris Curry who produced the ZX Spectrum and BBC Micro respectively. It was good fun, although Sinclair didn’t come across as a particularly likeable character, which I found disappointing since he was always something of a hero for me as a child. Acorn lives on with its ARM processor powering most of the world’s mobile phones and Sinclair continues to invent things, although with somewhat less success than the ZX Spectrum. Anyway, Micro Men is available to watch on BBC iPlayer for a while.
