Martin Freeman and Alexander Armstrong in Micro Men
Tonight as part of the Electric Revolution season on BBC Four, Martin Freeman and Alexander Armstrong will battle it out as Chris Curry and Clive Sinclair - two major players in Britain's new home computer market.
They're two distinctly British characters and, as you'd hope from a programme starring such comedy greats, it's not short on laughs - despite not strictly being a comedy:
Catch the whole thing tonight at 9pm on BBC Four.
As well as presenting the web-exclusive Have I Got News For You... For You, Alexander will soon be appearing with comedy partner Ben Miller on Comedy Extra in a new web-exclusive series Node, a spoof review show, as well as the new series of The Armstrong & Miller Show on BBC One.
Martin recently talked about his role in The Office for A Night At The Office on BBC Two. Watch the web-exclusive interviews on Comedy Extra.
More fun with computers
Of course, the Micro Men programme page contains lots of very informative links about the history of computing. But once you think you've learned enough, I'd like to draw your attention to Look Around You's page about Computers. That's where you can discover the most powerful computer ever built in Britain, and play the popular toilet-based computer game, Diarrhea Dan.
