GeneralRIP Ian McNaught-Davis PinmemberDalek Dave10-Feb-14 22:16 
For those UKians of a certain age there was a period in time back in the early 80's when the PC was just beginning its rise to ubiquity.
The BBC entered the fray with the BBC Computer Literacy Project, a national education program to enlighten and inform people about computers.
 
At the heart of this lay two important milestones.
 
Firstly the BBC Microcomputer (Actually quite a good, robust and serious machine) and the main arena for the education, a series of Television Programmes starting with "The Computer Programme"[^].
 
These were hosted by Ian McNaught-Davis.
 
A genial, avuncular type who took the nation through what computers are, how they work and what they could do for you.
 
And today, he died at the age of 85.
 
For a period of about three or four years he was synonymous with UK computer literacy and I am sure many of us here will remember him.
