Sinclair User: BBC's Micro Men

Only watching just this now, and finding it a lot of fun. Micro Men is a broadly comic semi-fictionalized drama about the early 80s computer war between Sir Clive Sinclair and Ex-employee Chris Curry (i.e. Acorn Electron, BBC). Alexander Armstrong’s portrait of Sir Clive is agreeably arrogantly monstrous. It’s still on iPlayer if you want to go watch. It’s a bit of a shame that it’s both technically awkward and probably illegal to watch iPlayer outside the UK, because the whole early 80s British computer boom is such a part of RPS’ gaming history – and influencing a lot of the wider gaming world in what it allowed – that I think it’d be interesting to the colonials. Trailer follows…

Hey! 29 minutes into the full thing, there’s totally a new games journalist. We are all like that. Anyone else watched it?
