A glimpse of the Harwell Dekatron / WITCH bursting back into life at The National Museum of Computing on 20 November 2012. (Full version now at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SYpPPI... ) The machine - the world's oldest original working digital computer dating from 1951 - can be seen at TNMOC, located on Bletchley Park, Buckinghamshire, UK. Opening times: http://www.tnmoc.org/visit In front of the machine are seated two of the the designers and two early users. School groups and the public come to TNMOC to learn about computer heritage and it is hoped that students will be inspired to become the next generation of computer scientists and engineers. Lots more videos of the event to come, so do subscribe to the TNMOC channel. More information on the computer at www.tnmoc.org Video by TVUK for TNMOC and kindly sponsored by Google UK.
