Just watched an entertaining 2009 TV program called "Micro Men" that tells the story of the early days of personal computers in the UK. Clive Sinclair is portrayed in competition with Acorn in the battle to produce the computer to be used in a BBC show.
The program is available for free viewing and even download here
at the internet archive. I found it fascinating and it includes a soundtrack with the highlights of the 1970s - 80s.
Acorn went on to produce the ARM CPU that we find in almost every mobile device. I still have a ZX80 computer here in the shed.
Thanks for the link and post Mark. Have been using the ZX81, Spectrum and QL. 73, Bas
