DVDs and Distributions

Produced in 2002, this is the first QL related DVD ever released. It holds various video interviews and a QL show walkaround by Darren Branagh.

This DVD holds searchable PDFs of 15 years (1996-2011) of the QL Today magazine, plus as Bonus Material seven software, documentation and picture collections which were previously only available on CD-ROMs or on web picture galleries. Plus there’s a copy (mirror) of the biggest QL related website. All in all gigabytes of information for you to discover.

Even though the Sinclair QL is the main topic, both the QL Today magazine and the Bonus Material cover other Sinclair (ZX) and Retro Computing aspects as well. Articles by Rick Dickinson (Sinclair Research Ltd. Industrial Designer January 1980 - April 1987), Tony Tebby (Sinclair Research Ltd. System Software Designer 1982-1984, author of Qdos), Simon N Goodwin (remember his many articles in the 80s computer magazines and software like the ZIP-compiler for the ZX Spectrum) are just a few hot-spots to name here.

This DVD was only available together with a one year subscription of volume 16 (4 issues) of the QL Today magazine.

This DVD is the successor to the QL Today DVD 2011 and was sent out to subscribers in September 2013 with The Final Issue of the QL Today Magazine.
