We bought it to help you with your homework…

Anyone who was around in the 80’s will remember the thrill of owning a ZX81, or if you were really posh a ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64 or an Acorn Electron.

Anyone remember home taping of computer games?

Waiting for the best part of five minutes for a game to load.

This song and animation is a homage to all of that, which is why it’s this weeks web of the week. Parents were suckers back then and whilst many were borderline unconvinced they did tend to give us the benefit of the doubt when we said that it would help us with our homework and our lovely new first generation home computer would duly arrive…


Can YOU Help?

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the West Wales Chronicle than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The West Wales Chronicle’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support the Chronicle – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
