Micro Men subtitles


The BBC Micro Men comedy/drama shown last October starring Alexander Armstrong and Martin Freeman as Clive Sinclair and Chris Curry has, unsurprisingly, gone down a storm in 8-bit enthusiast circles.

There’s been a lot of demand from the international Speccy community for subtitles, since it’s apparently rather heavy on colloquial English – and so as a contribution to this weekend’s Forever party, I spent several highly pleasurable hours in front of the rather spiffy Miyu subtitling package to put these together. It’s definitely a show that rewards repeated viewing – for instance, take a close look at what’s on the whiteboard behind Hermann as he says of the newly laid-off engineers: “They are clever people.

    Thanks for it, gasman. Last time I did subtitling, it was for the Doctor Who movies from 1960′s, and so I know how hard it is. Okay, English is not my mother-language, so I had to repeat and repeat the sequeces until I was able to understand them, sometimes only in context with later scenes…
    I honour your efforts!

    Yeah! Micromen was awesome. I must have watched it three times at least.
    Not that I needed the subs but I might keep them in place and watch it with them just in case I missed something.
