This is a feature taken from the BBC Watchdog TV programme. It features
an Acorn BBC Micro being portrayed as the hackers machine of choice to
set-up a scam e-commerce website! Whilst it wouldn't be impossible to
build a website using a beeb, it would be pretty impractical.
I think they just wanted the techie green screen look to give the impression of a real hardcore hacker at work??
We hired the BBC Micro to the BBC which seemed a bit like coals to Newcastle :-)
It was a dry hire job. The BBC and monitor were flightcased and sent to BBC White City by next working day courier.
