One of these machines is actually on display in the Science Museum. its importance cannot be understated.
From a vintage computing point of view, this item was an amazing piece of equipment for the time. One of the first true Multimedia machines. More important though is its social relevance. As a snapshot of life in the 1980s, this data is invaluable.
Many efforts are currently being made to retrieve, archive and re-format this information. There have been numerous press stories recently about this data. Most referring to the fact that the information contained within the original Domesday Book is more accessible than the 1980s project.
I have never seen one of these machines on ebay before, and
I would imagine that finding a similar complete working setup with discs would be very difficult indeed.
This auction contains the following items:
BBC Micro 'Domesday' - (Beefed up Master with 2nd processor and SCSI card)
Phillips LV ROM Player - (with genlock)
The Domesday Project discs - both discs, boxed
Cumana 40/80 drive
All connecting cables.
Only one thing missing, the remote control for the laser
