TBT: Tomorrows World from 1981 - computer program transmitted live over TV!

This clip is from Tomorrow's World (6.55pm on 3rd December 1981). Presenters Kieran Prendeville and Su Ingle demonstrate how computer programs are saved on cassette tape, with a mention for the (then) new BBC Micro

They then transmit a program (live over the TV!) for the Apple II and ZX81 but the program does not work on the show. The following week Su showed the program running and people wrote in to say that it had worked.
