I actually forgot to post about this but IMO it was pretty poor, which is a shame as I was really looking forward to this not only for the gaming but also because it was done by the brilliant Charlie Brooker. Some of the game choices were very strange indeed and there were a lot of historical/factual mistakes too.

The whole thing can be watched on 4OD

yes I have here in 720p HD, but have yet to watch it, with all these great tv shows like the black list and walking dead getting in the way :)

Well, I watched it and I was a bit disappointed. It seemed to gloss over the history of video games and with so little reference to Atari was amazing. I found it a tad self indulgent and at the end I thought, ok and?

Sorry, but when the fuck did "Twitter" become a game that changed the world? This is so sideways stupid its not even funny, and also he timeline shifting? Showing old ip eg. "Lucasfilm Games" with no background or previous history and then bam "Monkey Island" in your face..this is lousy when its diet light of facts, and wishly washly vague opinions from people than weren't even fucking born or were having there nappies changed.

I like CHARLIE BROOKER, but nice presentation and slid comedic remarks don't make for an informative history on vintage video games, black mirror my arse...I hope Bedroom to billions fairs better.

I tried both links, but it doesn't want Americans to view UK content. What the...

I have tried the IP masking tools before with no success, so will just have to pass on this series. :(
