http://www.mkw.me.uk/beebem/BeebEm414.exe

Taken from http://www.mkw.me.uk/beebem/

Heres a bloody good site to get disc images.....

http://www.stairwaytohell.com/

Please note, this site has not been updated since 2010, but BBC Software of this quality has not been produced in tens of years. Its Abandonware!!

Took me back a few years!!




Enjoy!!!!!!

Does anyone remember the Acorn Electron? That was my computer as a kid.

Used to be able to run some BBC games on it.

I had an electron, and an atom as a kid. No fancy disc drives here, just good old honest tape player with cables from Tandy!
