Only looking at coloured imagery leads to new viewpoints and narratives for otherwise well-known histories, and the history of computing is no exception. Martin Campbell-Kelly reconstructs a history of computing from surprisingly rarely-seen colour images.
This is a part of the 2013 Gresham College / British Society of the History of Mathematics conference.
The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/the-history-of-computing-in-colour
