A quote from Wikipedia says:

... BBC Basic has already been ported to the TI 83&84 series and other 
on-board languages and programming tools discussed by many include 
Fortran, awk, Pascal, Rexx, perl, Common Lisp, Python, tcl, and various 
Unix shells.

So, I guess it's a no, but the platform can handle it if someone spent 
enough time to port the interpreter.
