On June 21, 1948, in a redbrick building near the centre of a Manchester, England, a digital computer ran its first program successfully. The day was auspicious, because that was the very first time anywhere in the world that a stored program computer worked successfully. This short note summarises the background to that momentous development and explains a little about the machine called the “The Baby”.
