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.
