BBC Micro Roms Details

In 1981, BBC and Acorn Computers introduced BBC Micro, one of the first computers on the market. Its appearance is believed to have created an IT industry in the UK, including the video game industry. After more than thirty years, the BBC made a new revolution, this time at secondary level. To achieve this, the company launched a BBC Micro Bit, the predecessor to the original BBC Micro, which is said to teach children to encode.

In the early 1980s, the British Broadcasting Corporation BBC launched a project that became known as the BBC Computer Literacy Project. This project was created in response to the sensational documentary The Mighty Micro. Therein predicted Christopher Evans the beginning of the computer revolution and its future impact on the economy, industry, and all things related to it in the UK.

Today, BBC Micro is not just a stunning product of British engineering. Equipped with ARM-based processors, it is superior in performance to the other PCs of the 80s and early 90s. The operating system and base applications are stored in ROM on the motherboard, which reduces the download time to almost zero.
