A glimpse of the Harwell Dekatron / WITCH bursting back into life at The National Museum of Computing on 20 November 2012. 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:
In front of the machine are seated two of the the designers and two early users.
Lots more videos of the event to come, so do subscribe to the TNMOC channel.
