    educational TV

    might be useful for IT/computing lessons:

    you can legally download episodes of an american computing show called "computer chronicles". some of the episodes are like 20 years old!

    http://www.archive.org/search.php?qu...%2Fnum_reviews

    e.g. this one

    Intel 386 - The Fast Lane

    Internet Archive Search: collection:computerchronicles

    e.g. this one
    Just looking through some old posts and randomly clicking on each posts related links at the bottom of a page and this one from browolf came up.

    Great stuff - old videos of hardware and software. I've just watched one on the browser wars. A must have collection to show kids in school.

    I wonder what the rules are for downloading them and archving them to DVD. They may always be there but it would be gutting to see them dissapear one day.
