Episode 172 – Power Up at the Science Museum


Paul and Chris were kindly invited to The Science Museum to attend the launch night for year two of their Power Up event. We had a chance to speak with Mark Cutmore, the Science Museum’s Head of Commercial Enterprises about how the event came about and what visitors can expect to see.

Power Up is a fantastic installation which celebrates the joy of gaming, with over 180 playable computers and consoles spanning 40 years of gaming. It runs from 20-31 October and for more info and ticket details visit:
