TV: D is for...

Database

NEXT LINK IN THE Micro chain, this was indeed a Great Leap Forward from the likes of THE COMPUTER PROGRAMME, not least due to the presence of the smooth TONY BASTABLE and the gorgeous JANE ASHTON. Covered a wide range of topics: games (Jet Set Willy, Trashman etc.), business (ie the Sinclair QL), mobile computing, but went one better than its peers by actually transmitting computer programs over the end credits. Except it was all a bit of a palaver, involving a small square flashing in the corner of the TV screen, which you (or rather, your dad) had to cover with already-purchased “special adaptor” to somehow “load” it into your ZX81.
