The History of the BBC Micro In T&T

The BBC Micro or "Beeb" as it was commonly known was the result of efforts by the British Broadcasting Corp to provide computer literacy and access to as many people in the United Kingdom as humanly possible. For a more in depth look at the development of the BBC Micro go to David Schmit's home page: The BBC Lives!

I have decided to write a short historical essay of my own for our own Beeb. This compliments and expands on what I wrote in my background page. I hope you find this interesting.

Special thanks to Dr Barnes and my dad, Boyd Reid, for assisting me with this web project.
