Coming up in episode 48: Robert Schifreen

Robert's something of a Shift Run Stop hero - he's a key personality in the story of the Post Office/BT's Viewdata system 'Prestel', which regular listeners will know we're both far too interested in. Along with Stephen Gold, Robert famously hacked into Prestel in the 80s, gaining access to thousands of mailboxes (including Prince Philip's). The result was a massively expensive court case, and the passing of The Computer Misuse Act. See you back here on Thursday, when we'll have a meal prepared for your ears.
