I just had an email from those nice chaps who are making the highly anticipated movie about the rise of the UK computer and video game industry. 

Here is what they have to say:

'From Bedrooms to Billions' is a British two hour feature length documentary movie that tells the remarkable story of the UK Video games Industry.
Starting in the late 1970's the film shows how the creativity and vision of a relatively small number of British individuals, many of which were children, allowed the UK to play a key, pioneering role in the shaping of the worldwide billion dollar video games industry, which today dominates the modern world's entertainment landscape. The film features interviews with many major British game designers, musicians and journalists from across the last 30 years and has only been made possible by people ‘backing’ the project through pre-ordering and donations. The film, which features an all new soundtrack by SID musician legends Rob Hubbard, Ben Daglish and Martin Galway has been in production for nearly 18 months and is due for release in Spring 2014. This film is a must for anyone interested in the creation of games and the industry and not just those into retro gaming of the 80’s and 90’s!
Anyone who ‘Pre-Orders’ the film not only gets access to the films’ BACKER’S ZONE ( which is loaded with extended film clips and music but also immediately receives an exclusive pre-order only download bundle containing 4 extended clips which are; ‘Matthew Smith on Manic Miner’, ‘David Braben on Elite’, ‘Mel Croucher on Deus Ex Machina’ and ‘Rob Hubbard on Coding’.
The website also contains various other items of merchandise such as the Official Soundtrack CD’s, T-Shirts, highly rare signed gaming items as well as the film’s official posters exclusively designed by veteran video game magazine artist Oliver Frey (ZZAP!64, CRASH).
