BBC4 Documentaries

Some good documentaries this week on BBC 4. The first on Tetris:

Monday 9 February 2004 9pm-10pm; rpt Tuesday 10 February 11.30pm-12.30am; Thursday 12 February 7pm-8pm; Sunday 15 February 10.05pm-11.05pm. This is the story behind the fiendishly addictive game, a tale of high stakes, intimidation and legal feuds set against the backdrop of Cold War tensions between East and West. [more]

The second on the history of the personal computer:

Monday 9 February 2004 10pm-10.30pm; rpt 1.30am-2am. Time Shift charts the development of the PC from its precarious early days. The 1970s and 80s saw the explosion of the Sinclair, Spectrum, Apple Mac and Amstrad into the domestic market, while video games brought the arcade into the living room. [more]

4 comments and trackbacks

Yoz beats me to the punch about BBC Four's computing programmes. I still find stuff to witter about here though.

BBC 4 are going to broadcast two geeky programmes: one on Tetris and one on the history of computing. Creety creet!

I've just noticed that Paul's chaff trackback is perhaps the most useful one I've ever seen for the sole reason that the included text was actually written as a trackback and isn't an excerpt of the linked post itself.

Posted by: Dan Hon on February 19, 2004 10:58 PM

Well, it's a side effect of some reorganisation I did a while ago on the site. I still provide an RSS feed of excerpts, but unlike people who let MT cut..., I realised I had better provide something that read well on its own. (I may have been influenced by the Daring Fireball feed here.)

As a result, when I came to look at my per-category archive pages, which were beginning to get a bit big, I decided to use the excerpt as part of the category index page, giving me yet more incentive to make the excerpts readable.

One thing that I haven't quite got round to is including the excerpt as the 'description' meta tag on the individual entry page. (I was wondering if I could do something clever with a lot of Perl to automate generating keyword meta tags too, but that idea seems to have fallen by the wayside.)

Anyway, thanks.
