Had the totally amazing opportunity to interview one of my all-time Spectrum heroes, the one and only RICK DICKINSON down in Cambridge. Rick, who designed the ZX81, ZX Spectrum, Sinclair QL, Spectrum+ etc etc etc was an absolute blast. A proper gent, full of brilliant anecdotes, wit and charisma, and a truly genius vision on design, and indeed the design of the ZX81, Spectrum, Sinclair QL etc. It was an awesome experience, and for a lifelong Speccy fan, an absolute dream. 🙂 Thanks to Rick for inviting me into his home, and to his charming wife who was also a star. I cannot WAIT to put this film together…!!
Thanks to PLAY EXPO in Blackpool for an awesome event, and allowing us an AAA filming experience!!
Spectrum Addict enjoyed itself immensely, meeting new friends and old, and stocking up some great shots for the movie. Blackpool was sunny, the fish & chips were good, and it was a pleasure to meet people like Simon Butler, Andy Spencer, Jim Bagley and Bob Wakelin – amongst many others!!
Spectrum Addict will be attending Play Expo in Blackpool on Saturday 30th April 2016 to film the event and interview various Spectrum legends. Please come and say hello! We’ll be the ones lugging a huge bad-ass camera around 🙂
