In the 1980s, the BBC explored the world of computing in The Computer Literacy Project. They commissioned a home computer
(the BBC Micro) and taught viewers how to program.
The Computer Literacy Project chronicled a decade of information technology and was a milestone in the history of computing in Britain, helping to inspire a generation of coders.
