| It's old, it's now sort of computer antiques but it's fun to watch!
The Computer Chronicles is a television series about computers and Computer software that ran in the US from 1983 up to 2002.

When you watch the early episodes (especially the eighties' episodes) you immediately realise that the way TV programs are made today is quite different from what you're watching here.

But it's absolutely fun! In my opinion for two reasons: first of all, this is a good overview of how it all got started (the PC & computer technology in general), and it's almost hallucinating to watch & hear educated adults being seriously enthusiastic about 64,000 bytes of memory.

And the software demonstrations! What are they raving about? It all looks so simplistic and basic (today).

Secondly: I'm afraid I have to admit I was there. Although young, I will never forget the first hours on my Atari 800XL, my first ST, my first IBM compatible computer, my first steps in the world of programming, and so on… I never saw an episode when it was originally aired because I don't live in the US or wasn't there during that period (I know, it ran for 19 years, but it's still a period).

It is quirky and fun that we can relive those long-gone moments of discovering computing and programming … A lot has happened in the computer industry in the past 25 years.
