You might check out a BBC series (produced 1991) entitled
THE MACHINE THAT CHANGED THE WORLD. It chronicles the history of the
computer from its beginnings to the present. Each volume is 50
Vol. 1 - The Great Brain, Vol. 2 - Inventing the Future, Vol. 3 - The
Paperback Computer, Vol. 4 - The Thinking Machine, Vol. 5 - The
Passing of Remoteness
We purchased ours through International Tele-film in Canada. There
are probably other sources in the U.S. for BBC productions.
