Excellent footage and a great story

I found this as a streaming video rental, and thought it looked interesting. It was.

I'm a software engineer and I've always been interested and intrigued by the history of computing machines. This documentary did a great job of combining actual footage and anecdotes to tell the story of the development of the first electronic computers.

If the content is to be believed (which I did), then many of the things I understood about the computer's history were false - mainly about who should've been credited with certain ideas and inventions. It would appear that Mauchly and Eckert were outright robbed of their creative innovations.

All in all, if you're interested in this sort of stuff, I think you'll really like this film. It's production values are on the low side, but for me the content more than made up for this.
