Spread throughout the file cdi_wimbledon are the text and data for a debugging program. Most of the strings are rather unremarkable... apart from two lines which mention a programmer in some way.

The first is located at 0x10F01:

While the second's at 0x147D4:

Call the programmer: +44-306-875777

The programmer in question is either Stuart "Stuie" Pilkington or Kevin Higgins, both of whom are listed as "Software Engineers" in the credits. It's not the programmer's personal telephone number, though - the same number appears in an old Philips document advertising courses for designers and programmers for the CD-i (page 66 of this file).
