Introducing the BBC Micro Date: 1983 Introducing the BBC Micro

The BBC Microcomputer is one of the best micros on the market and arguable the most worthwhile investment for ambitious beginners. It is also particularly suitable for family use because very many children already have access to a BBC Microcomputer at school, where it is one of the most popular machines.

The machine, however, is complex. It presents and impressive array of facilities, yet the same sophistication that appeals to experts can also appear daunting to beginners. The large size of the manual can also make it difficult for beginners to master the essentials quickly.

This book starts at the very beginning with setting up the machine. It guides the reader, step-by-step, through the difficult early stages until he is able to write his own programs with confidence, achieve his own special effects, and is all set to exploit the full potential of this superb micro.

Yet the majority of owners of the BBC micro have only used the cassette and TV/RGB sockets at the back of the computer and the printer and disc drive plugs underneath.

This book introduces ways of using the ANALOGUE IN socket and the USER PORT to interface the computer with its environment. The projects are fully explained in non-technical language at every stage and ideas are given for additional experiments.
