  • First edition of Computer Weekly 1966

    On the front page of the first issue of Computer Weekly, the magazine featured a guest opinion piece written by Basil de Ferranti, then managing director of International Computers and Tabulators – a forerunner of ICL.

    He described the launch of Computer Weekly as “an opportunity to read in an intelligible form about a field of activity which will have a profound effect on the society in which we live”.

    “The computer is one of those fundamental developments which, like railways and the motor car, will totally alter our way of life. Our activities will help to raise the standard of living, and provide better lives for millions. Computer Weekly can make its own contribution towards this objective,” de Ferranti predicted.

    The National Museum of Computing holds the print archives of Computer Weekly. The museum has scanned the first issue of Computer Weekly, which you can download here.
