Jim Austin on BBC Collectaholics

Professor Jim Austin has a vast collection of computing equipment and ephemera accumulated over a number of years. A number of the items on display in the Computer Science 50 Years exhibition were kindly loaned from that collection.

The BBC programme "Collectaholics", which describes itself as a "series exploring the weird and wonderful world of some Britain's passionate, avid and sometimes downright obsessive collectors", featured Jim in a programme first broadcast on BBC2 on 15th April 2015, and which can be seen here.

More information about Jim's collection can be found on the Computer Museum website.

Jim's museum was also featured in an article in The Yorkshire Post on 10th February 2017.
