Oracle 1992

31st December 2010 - From Ant :

At this time of year I'm always reminded of how long it has been since Oracle disappeared - 18 years ago this evening in fact. With that in mind. thought you might like this. Bits and pieces of it have been floating around in various forms for a while but at the moment I think this is probably the most complete and restored version of the full last night of Oracle. Sourced from an SVHS recording, processed with some teletext hardware that basically did its best to repair the pages from as many repeat cycles as it could make out, and - after much procrastination - a certain amount of human repair (that would be me then).
