Collectaholics takes a look at Colossus

Post this page to popular social media

Colossus has featured in a BBC2's Collectaholics as an example of the power of of conserving and rebuilding vintage computers. The main focus of the programme was Jim Austin's private collection near York. He was visited by members of the Computer Conservation Society and some students determined to bring a machine back to life.

A Colossus veteran emailed us immediately after the prime-time programme delighted with the Colossus feature and especially pleased to see the recognition given to Bill Tutte and Tommy Flowers.

The item on Colossus starts at about 38 minutes in.
