LEO: New film celebrates the 70th anniversary of the world’s first business computer

Lyons Electronic Office: The Story of the World’s First Business Computer

To mark the 70th anniversary of LEO, the world’s first business computer, the LEO Computers Society and the Centre for Computing History (CCH) are launching a new specially commissioned short film. Funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund as part of efforts to preserve and promote the history of this remarkable British invention, the film will be released on the 30th November – the day in 1951 that LEO ran its first program. The film will introduce a whole new generation, from secondary school age upwards, to the remarkable story of the birth of computing technology that, today, we take for granted.

The film will premiere on YouTube at 7pm on 30th November 2021 at https://youtu.be/Rzu68nRVwtE.
