Home Computer Terminal

First broadcast: 20 September 1967

In this report, Derek Cooper investigates Europe's first home computer terminal. Installed into the home of industrial consultant Rex Malik, it includes an electric typewriter and can send and receive messages, update his diary and check his bank balance. Even his four-year-old son Nicholas can use it to work out basic maths problems. Can we expect a computer like this in every home in the future? Time will tell.
