@Merlin - that song got me into Keyboards and Synth's Great Phil Oakey stuff.
The show is great - still have it on my sky box from the BBC4 showing. Love how the family (well the kids anyway - and strangely so is the dad sometimes!) are confused by what to do with the stuff!
On a separate note - my daughter spent two hours today playing Little Computer People on her PC (She's only eight and a half) and loved it. Using C64 Forever. I actually taught her how to do it from the C64 command line but then, once she got it I showed her the quick way LOL. She also watched the show with me on BBC4 and loved it (mainly because she has access to loads of the equipment and technology from that era because I'm a collector and she can say - I can get that to work dad - why can't they!). I feel she is doomed to geekdom!
I'm pretty sure they picked a family who are especially useless. I mean, come on, breaking a VHS video recorder by slamming in a beta tape repeatedly? Not knowing how to wash dishes? I'm surprised they've lived this long.
The tech they gave them was pretty wonky too, I mean a Win 3.1 machine in a kids bedroom? In real life he'd have had a shit fit! Atleast he got a powermac after though...
