The feature commences with a history of Everyday Electronics and Practical Electronics, the two "sister" titles which ultimately merged to become EPE. There is also a gallery of cover shots of old 1970's and 1980's magazines, and a fascinating reminder of advertisements of the era. See how Sinclair, Home Radio and Maplin all used to advertise during the golden years of hobby electronics.
