The BBC have made available a large amount of content from the 1980s on this site. You will probably need to be UK based to watch the programmes.

Yes, viewable here in the US too.

Incredibly awesome archiving project! I’ve dug out a few of these over the years, but it’s so good having it all made aacailable.

I mistakenly posted a new thread with this name earlier. It's rightly now deleted but I wanted to flag this clip from episode 17 of Micro Live, which features the arrival of the Spectrum 128. The interview with the PR woman is just amazing. They don't make them like that any more (the interviews, or PR women!): https://computer-literacy-project.pilot ... 2ed2ab5af5
