Top Gear take on Lotus Turbo Challenge - This Week In Retro 69

In a longer than usual episode we welcome Tony from OzRetrocomp as a guest host this week. We talk about emulating those old Windows environments online, Top Gear taking a look at a classic 16 bit racer, the C64 manual gets remastered and how a novel input device for the 8 bits was looked on as a threat to UK safety! All this and our community question of the week.

Just a reminder that there will be no show next week, we are taking a break so Neil can do some colouring in!!
