Elite - Braben and Bell on TV Friday C5 7.30 ish

Sorry for the last minute news, but anybody interested in Elite in the UK might want to watch Channel 5 tonight (Friday) at about 7.30 - I think.

Cheers.

Would help if the full synopsis was quoted: managed to create the worlds first FULLY 3D computer game in their bedrooms.


Which is true.

or maybe... you've got the official m$ wmp firefox plugin tonyyeb?

i've tried this on another site and it worked, maybe this one get's fooled too

right click on the movie, select [Properties], drag and select and copy the entire link from [File -> Location:] to here

should look something like this:

Are you saying I should or should not have the official MS WMP plugin? I HAVE the Microsoft one installed. The link points to the Microsoft one.

If that had been part of the full synopsis I would have. But it wasn't.

Five's TV Guide said "The documentary series looking at the untold stories of British scientific innovations focuses on the development of Britain's 1.4 billion pound computer game industry. In the early 1980s, two pioneering Cambridge undergraduates set out to achieve the seemingly impossible task of developing the world's first 3-D computer game."


Which is not true

Edit: I think we were looking at two different pages.
