Just saw this for the first time, fantastic stuff. Seems to have slipped under the radar here though, so here it is! Youtube link.

I didn't thought there were demos on the ancestor of the Acorn Archimedes! Cool! :)

Many nice 2d effects and 3ds. I am unfamiliar with Acorn BBC 8bit though I am interested about them because I love Acorn computers, specifically the archimedes brand, I dont know why :)

Too bad most of the effects were rather slow paced. But all in all very nice!

Definately the best music i've heard from the beeb.

Also, pretty much the best effects i've seen, but that doesn't say much. The Beeb had a lot of good things going for it, but its gfx modes are not good for fast demo effects.

Somewhat boring presentation but cool effects. Cover of the tune is also very nice.

Pacing could be better, but some quite good stuff :)

Can't believe I never saw this before. I suppose I was excited about being involved in the CRTC demo and this one passed me by. The beeb gets so few demos and to have one full of classic effects is just great.

Some of the effects are kind of slow but I suppose this could be explained in part by the ugly pixel packing scheme used by the video hardware. It's a very simple tapped shift register system, no equivalent of a VIC, the colour bits for each pixel are packed interleaved within the byte so in a 4 colour mode you'd have 4 pixels in each byte e.g. 01230123, rather than the more friendly 00112233.

There are no sprites and no hblank interrupt. Text characters are drawn in software in all but the teletext mode. Awful.

Oops, by hblank interrupt I meant raster interrupt :)
I'm sure the capture doesn't do this one justice. Awesome stuff.
