World’s oldest digital computer is back in action

After a period on display in the former Birmingham Museum of Science and Industry, the WITCH was dismantled and put into storage, but "rediscovered" by a team of volunteers from The National Museum of Computing (TNMOC) in 2008.

Birmingham museum, in conjunction with the Computer Conservation Society, developed a plan to restore the machine and to put it once again to educational use at TNMOC.
