The Five Doctors 1983 Season 20 Story 130
(1983 Transmitted Edition)

I remember animating this in Macromedia Flash in a class maybe ten years ago.
I wonder if I still have it somewhere?

why doesn't the Guide mention them? - Oh, it's not very accurate.
Oh? - I'm researching the new edition.


These are the ones I've not been brave enough to even attempt

I might have a go at the Dark Tower graphic - not animated, but just the finished graphic.

So, I am a bit of a vintage basic programmer, and I was playing around with the BBC micro's fantastic graphical capabilities, and found that I could successfully create the diamond pattern monitor and a few others seen on this console. I altered some of the base sample code in the user manual as I recognised what the code was doing. I stripped away the colour from it, and put it on a loop. I then ran my code through a floppy disk on a digital emulator to try and capture what I have done. I will post this soon, and try other monitor animations such as the dark tower... How hard can it be?!
