We hate 2020!

Just when we thought 2020 couldn't get any worse! We were about to re-open after many months of being closed but then disaster struck when a mains water pipe burst and flooded much of the ground floor of the museum.
Sadly re-opening has now been postponed. Read More >>>

Hidden Histories of the Information Age

BBC Radio 4: Hidden Histories of the Information Age 23rd October 2014 at 13.45. Repeated week commencing January 4th with LEO story on 7th January 2015 at 9.30 am. 

One of six 15 minute programmes, presented by Aleks Krotoski, devoted to specific exhibits at the new Information Age Gallery which opened on 24th October in the London Science Museum. 

The program told the story of LEO as ushering in the new age of business computing. It involved interviews with Jessica Bradford from the Museum (content manager of the new gallery, Gloria Guy and Frank Land from the LEO Computers Society, a teashop manageress who had been a user of the original teashop ordering program and nicely rounded off by Tilly Blyth (who had been largely instrumental in the making of the new Gallery from concept to final exhibit) from the Science Museum. 

Altogether a well-balanced telling of the LEO story and how it fits into the development of the Information Age.
