© Stuart Brady

The Acorn BBC Micro is a computer build by the English company BBC. The BBC made a documentary around 1979/1980 to inform the public about what was possible with a computer from those days.

After making the documentary the BBC also wanted to show what was possible with a computer that was available for the public to buy, which resulted in BBC using computers made by Acorn (Acorn Proton).

The BBC Micro B was used by a very lot of schools in the United Kingdom. Also the ARM-processor that is developed by BBC, and is still used in recent mobile telephones.
