The Wakefield Back Catalogue

In April 1983, the founding members of the Wakefield BBC Micro User Group handed out a “hints & tips” sheet to those who attended the inaugural meeting. Over thirty years on – and after several name changes along the way – the Club’s monthly newsletter is still going strong.

To celebrate the end of Volume 33 of The WROCC in March 2016, we have relaunched the Wakefield Back Catalogue CD. It now contains around 396 back issues of the newsletter, including more than 100 from the 1980s and 1990s which had once been considered lost. Indeed, we believe that there are now just three issues left unaccounted for from the Club’s thirty year history.

The disc contains almost 650MBytes of data, including:

  • Newsletters from the early days of the Archimedes and RISC OS
  • Back issues of Awake, as the publication became known for much of the 1990s and early 2000s
  • Issues of The WROCC from 2003 until March 2016
  • Full indexes of the newsletter’s content.
  • Some video and a still-image slideshow of the Wakefield Show in the nineties and noughties (the video is compatible with KinoAMP, while the slideshow is in a format suitable for viewing on Windows-based systems).

Many of the files have been converted from the original Impression and Ovation Pro format using GhostScript with the PostScript 3 drivers to ensure the best possible quality. They should be readable on any platform that can read PDF documents.

Now together in one place, this collection provides a wealth of useful information as well as a fascinating look back at the history of our platform and one of its longest-running user groups.

Launched at Wakefield 2016, the sixth edition of the Wakefield Back Catalogue is available to non-members for £10.00 and members for the discounted price of £7.50, both including P&P. To order your copy, complete the Order Form and post it back to us. Contact us if you have any questions.
