The BBC Microcomputer and me, 30 years down the line
 
Quote:

It ran a new programming language, BBC Basic (beginners all-purpose symbolic instruction code), and helped bring computing into people's homes and schools.

However, trying to establish an "official" launch date is trickier than it sounds.
