ZX Spectrum 30th Anniversary - London 5th/6th May
« on: April 19, 2012, 11:25:52 AM »
Someone has organised a 30th anniversary show for the ZX Spectrum in London (at the British Film Institute) over the weekend of 5th / 6th May.

Details are still quite sketchy unfortunately - see
http://www.bfi.org.uk/whatson/bfi_south ... x_spectrum

I should have thought that by now, they would have finished the programme.

I have asked them whether they would like any traders to attend, but 3 days later and they have not got back to me, so it's probably just some sort of fixed display - who knows...  They are some speakers attending, but with it being in central London, I doubt I shall be attending..  :)

There look to be some interesting talks over the two days.

A video I came across on YouTube.
It's about the Spectrum but from the point of an American!

Video blurb....
Quote
Name the top computers of the 1980's... okay, if the Spectrum wasn't on that list, you need to read up on your history! From an American gamer's perspective, is Sinclair's 48k wonder worth getting today?
