Superb documentary
18 April 2017 | by pbpbcanonfreakSee all my reviews

This very well planned and produced documentary on how the British computer games industry took off and eventually faded ticks every box in nostalgic and informative terms and it's parade of interviewees provide endlessly fascinating insight and stories throughout. Just great. Watch it.
