Traditionally the December CCS meeting in London consists of old films about computers.
Some of these films are of a documentary nature and some were made by various suppliers to
promote their wares.
Many of these films seem, with the benefit of perhaps half a century of hindsight,
a little quaint.
A few are, quite honestly, laughable.
All are interesting however.
About the speaker
Dan Hayton is the CCS’s media manager and is usually to be found
at the back of the room with a video camera.
Once a year we release him from this duty and allow him to take centre stage –
partly because he has earned a rest from his normal duties, but mostly because he
is an entertaining raconteur who delights his audience.
Apart from his rôle in the CCS he is also a leading member of the Newcomen Society
and of the Greater London Industrial Archeology Society.
A man of many talents, not to be missed.
