From the archives, a 1986 peek by the BBC into #interactivefiction pioneers Infocom:

That Twitter post leads me through a maze of twisty URLs that never end. Do you have a more direct link to the video itself?

I think the BBC Archive only posted this video clip directly on social media accounts, so the Twitter link I gave above, and a Facebook version at

https://www.facebook.com/BBCArchive/vid ... 689426832/

However! Digging through YouTube a bit finds a YouTube version there, at least for now. This is a copy of the original version of this interview as it was originally broadcast in 1985 (the 1986 one above is compilation/repeat):
