Sadly re-opening has now been postponed. Read More >>>

Torch Z80 Disc Pack

The Torch Z80 Disc Pack was actually two parts, the Disc Pack seen here, and the Z80 Communicator second processor. When the Torch Z80 Disc Pack was launched, CP/M was widely in business and there was a wealth of software available (e.g Ashton Tate Dbase2, MicroPro Wordstar & CalcStar, Microsoft MBasic, Micro Focus COBOL). The Torch Z80 Disc Pack gave BBC Micro users access to all the CP/M commercial and Public Domain software.
