New Steve Jobs Documentary to Air Tonight on PBS and UK's Channel 4
Last week, we noted that PBS is set to premiere a new documentary about Steve Jobs tonight, offering interviews with a number of prominent personalities with connections to Jobs. The documentary will also include brief clips from a rare 1994 interview in which Jobs talks about his views on life.
PBS has now released a pair of clips from the show ahead of its premiere, offering a glimpse at what viewers can expect later today.
In the first clip, author and Jobs' friend David Sheff describes a birthday party for Sean Lennon, son of John Lennon and Yoko Ono, where Jobs presented Sean with one of the first Macinstoshes to roll off the production line. While the revolutionary computer was a hit with many of the high-profile attendees at the party, Scheff focuses on artist Andy Warhol, who spent a few minutes with the machine under the instruction of Jobs.
The second clip
sees The Wall Street Journal
's Walt Mossberg and tech columnist and early Apple employee Robert X. Cringley discuss the complex relationship between Steve Jobs and Bill Gates, focusing on the historic All Things D interview
that saw the two men on stage together back in 2007.

Yep, completely agree. This was pretty poor. Very badly edited with no real sense of chronology. I think the general public watching this interested in finding out more abut Steve & Apple will have been left quite confused. It was quite tabloidish and they butchered a clip from his last D8 interview to make his pause for thought look like he was answering a question about his own health. It was an answer from a completely different question. Poor.
Oh, and that Eddie Izzard bit about 'has anyone read the iTunes agreement... they can take your kids...' suspiciously like the iHumancentipad episode of South Park. I can't believe he's stealing a joke from what will have been a widely watched episode of that show. Weak.
Um, maybe you should watch it first before condemning it? I'm not a huge fan of made-for-television documentaries myself, but PBS is generally better than most. I wish they had more funding and could dig even deeper and cover more people, issues, and topics. Keep in mind that this documentary may convince even more people to buy the book than would have originally.
UK people are special :p
Most likely PBS will put the entire program online after the initial broadcast. It's a featured item in the PBS app on my iPad so it is probably a prominently promoted item on their website.
