BBC BASIC turns 35

35 years ago, in mid-September 1981, the very first version of BBC BASIC was sent to Hitachi in Japan for ROM masking and manufacture. This marked the point at which development had to stop and the code which would go into the first batch of BBC Micros had to be 'frozen', so I consider it to be the moment that BBC BASIC as we know it came into existence.

At that time I would have been 9 years old and the following Christmas I would have gotten my first computer. A TRS-80. (which had a BASIC only operating system. Not DOS and no windows.)
