Fun with a 1981 BBC Microcomputer

This is a BBC microcomputer from 1981. It belonged to my aunt but when she threatened to throw it away I panicked and offered to re home it. 

I got it home, plugged it in, turned it on. It exploded. 

Fortunately it turns out this is a common problem with a cheap solution, replace 3 capacitors from the power supply and you’re good to go!

Next step: relearn BASIC.
