Clive Sinclair has merged with the infinite
« on: September 16, 2021, 06:37:38 pm »

Sad news today for many of us on this side of the Atlantic, as Clive Sinclair, father of the Black Watch, ZX Spectrum, and C5, passed on and became one with the cosmos.

For so many of us in Ireland, The UK, Spain and Italy, this is how we played video games in the 1980s.

Clive Sinclair was a singular, bad-tempered, eccentric, likeable character with no interest in video games.

If you're not familiar with his name, a tremendous documentary on him by Kim Justice is available here:

And there was a pretty entertaining fictional account of his career made by BBC Four, available here:
