HOME COMPUTING WEEKLY
For Users Of All Classic 8-Bit Machines
Publisher: Argus Press Publications
Active: 1983-1985
Frequency: Weekly
Archive Status: Complete


Home Computing Weekly was aimed at all computer owners and was constantly evolving to take in more formats. It is best described as a colour 8-bit computing newspaper. Amongst the computers that it covered at one time or another are the Acorn Electron, BBC, Spectrum, Dragon, Atari, Texas and Amstrad. It ran from March 8th 1983 to October 27th 1985.

It started publication at a cost of 35p per issue, rising to 40p when it merged with Popular Computing Weekly in 1985. Nowadays, Home Computing Weekly is possibly the most difficult magazine to locate because, as with a newspaper, each issue was usually thrown away after being read. However, presumably by covering more machines, its target market was wider and issues may just be found hiding in your loft with your 8-bit computer collection.

Many type-ins for the Acorn Electron and the BBC were contained within its pages, and we have an archive of many of them. The Home Computing Weekly archives are not available on the DVD as issued (due to the size the archive takes up), but if you require them, we can burn 3 x DVDs of the complete collection upon request.
