Amazingly the Acorn Electron works on my living room plasma screen. Although I had to mute the white noise blaring the speakers!

Fortunately the line numbers in BBC BASIC scripts being multiples of 10 is a convention rather than a requirement so a broken zero key wouldn't render it completely useless.
The following works just fine:
1 PRINT "GIVE ME A NUMBER"
2 INPUT X
4 PRINT "TWO TIMES ";X;" IS ";Y
However if I want to insert an extra line between 3 and 4 I'm basically screwed unless I allowed space for it from the outset.
