Agreed, although I know next to nothing about it :-) I'll definitely be
keeping all the relevant bits I find together in a safe place, though.

I'll add that BBC apology letter to the pile of things awaiting scanning
if needs be; I'll also see what related manuals / software there are for
the Dragon when I'm at the museum next.

I suppose it's up there with Telesoftware as a good example of a public-
access information system that pre-dated the www.

I'll ask one of our museum guys about Basicode as I believe he was quite
involved in the 8-bit micro days of introducing computers to the masses.
He may have some experiences and the like to share.
