You may have been looking at the CTI Centre for Biology's gopher on
gopher.csc.liv.ac.uk, port 70. As you say, much of the info is
circa 1991 though it will be updated shortly when we get some staff
(we have about 0.75 of a person at present). The gopher itself is
located on a machine in our local computer science dept and was
not accessible 5 mins ago -- I don't know why. 

We (or more correctly 0.25 of I) also have a nascent W3 service which
tells you a bit about what's going on in computers and education in the 
UK. The URL is:-


As of a month or so hence we should have a person working full-time in
this area (albeit only for a year).
