The Computer Programme was a TV series, produced by Paul Kriwaczek, originally broadcast by the BBC (on BBC2) in 1982. The idea behind the series was to introduce people to computers and show them what they were capable of. The BBC wanted to use their own computer, so the BBC Micro was developed as part of the BBC Computer Literacy Project, and was featured in this series. The series was successful enough for two series to follow it, namely Making the Most of the Micro in 1983 and Micro Live from 1984 until 1987.
The two studio presenters were Ian McNaught-Davis (known as ‘Mac’) and Chris Serle, the former showing the latter some of the rudimentary basics of computer operation and BASIC programming. The ‘on location’ reporter was Gill Nevill.
Each programme would normally start with either Serle or McNaught-Davis introducing a real life situation where computers are being (or could be) applied – examples included the office, a car factory and the British Library. This would form the theme which would underpin the demonstrations shown on the programme.
A really easy way to get the Free Fall achievement in Far Cry 3 by, well, doing nothing…
During the main story, when you are with Willis in the airplane on your way to the second island, you are supposed to jump out of the plane and use your wing suit to safely land. Instead, don’t use the wing suit and just plunge to death. You will fail the mission, but unlock the Free Fall achievement (along with the Higher Than a Kite achievement).
Picked these up for 10 euro’s in total. Unfortunately Wario Land is missing the manual and cardboard insert. The box however is in near mint condition.
Below are some pictures of some new retrogaming stuff I bought recently. I finally bought a Super Nintendo system along with some games. Although the Wii Virtual Console has most Super Nintendo games you would want to play, nothing beats the real deal!
