First aired in 1984, on the Thames TV segment called “Database”, this clip was trying to educate tech-interested folks about the complex and deep activity of sending an email to another person or company in the 80s in the UK.

Check that out kids, it wasn’t as easy to just text someone back in the day. Just kidding. I wasn’t even born in 1984. Have fun with retro-computing on the Micronet 800! Thanks to Thames TV for sharing this from their archive.
