Please note that these interviews were conducted primarily for my own use; I am not a professional journalist - I do this in my spare time. Some of my questions aren't very well written, I realise that - mainly down to a lack of time at the moment - hopefully this will be changing soon.

No censorship has taken place on this site. Only very minor editing to the interviews has been carried out, for example, spelling and presentation.

I would like to thank all of the above interviewees for agreeing to do the interviews and for putting up with me!

The interviewees contain all copyright for their answers. The articles on this site may not be reproduced in any form without prior permission from myself and the interviewees.

Many thanks to Martijn van der Heide for providing the interviews with a new home at the World of Spectrum.
