ROUGOL logo Welcome to
RISC OS User Group Of London



ROUGOL is a not-for-profit organisation consisting of RISC OS users in London and the south-east. Our aim is to bring those users together. There is no membership fee and entry to all meetings is free. To find out more, email us.


Meetings are held on the third Monday of every month. Most meetings feature a guest speaker, demonstrating the latest hardware or software, giving tutorials of software both new and old, or simply to kick off discussions on the current hot topic. Entrance is free, so why not come along and say hello?


The next RISC OS London Show is on Saturday 29th October 2016.

Next meeting - Monday 16th May 2016 
Media Preservation - Paul Emerton, Concept Television Studios Ltd

Paul Emerton has recently taken delivery of the remaining BBC's Special Projects Acorn kit and disc media with the job of recovering and archiving the material and building up the machines into working demos. Hopefully one or two will function well enough to loan to a museum on completion.

Paul will tell a few short stories about what the BBC used the kit for and then give a rough guide to what he plans to do.

  1. Recovery of data
  2. Restoration of machines
  3. Feedback on processes / questions from the crowd

If Paul can get it running in time then he may also be able to demo something produced by the BBC graphics department on original hardware (PRISMA / APEX systems).
