Who is Mel Croucher? He can be described in many ways, some of them even printable. Mel is known to many as the godfather of the UK computer games industry. He was there right at the beginning - the pioneer of multimedia - long before most people had even seen a computer, let alone knew what to do with it. Not only were the video games produced in the early 80s by Mel's company Automata popular, but also the music often released with them garnered a cult following. As the brains behind some of the most ambitious games of the time, Mel worked with legends including Christopher Lee, Ian Dury, Frank Zappa and even the supergroup U2. This interview sees Mel take us on a tour of his early career as an architect through his journey into becoming a radio producer which somehow morphed into creating not just computer games but some of the world's first multi-media products. He talks candidly about his interviews on the BBC's Woman's Hour, his work with some of the world's biggest media icons, and even reveals his political views and his thoughts about a potential dystopian future media world. This is an unmissable, engaging and revealing interview with one of the UK games industry's leading cult figures. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mel Croucher.
