Lots of early computer history if you like that sort of thing.
23 June 2008 | by dwillsxbrSee all my reviews

This five part series takes viewers on an absorbing journey from the dawn of the computer to the early 1990s. It was released in 1992 so unfortunately it missed the start of Win95 and the boom time of world wide web. Very little time is spent on modern day personal computers with the PC and Mac so for me it's a bit dull to watch. My favorite episode is 'The Thinking Machine' all about the rise and fall of A.I, artificial intelligence. Episode 1 -Giant Brains. 2 -Inventing the Future. 3 -The Paperback Computer. 4 -The Thinking Machine. 5 -The World at Your Fingertips.
