ARLINGTON, VA; November 2, 2011--Video excerpts from STEVE JOBS — ONE LAST THING are now available online in advance of the broadcast premiere tonight at 10:00 p.m. ET. The documentary follows NOVA’s "The Fabric of the Cosmos" with Brian Greene, premiering tonight at 9:00 p.m. ET. Through interviews with colleagues and others who knew Jobs, ONE LAST THING provides an inside look at the man and some of the major influences that helped shape his life and career.
Two clips, described below, are available:
1) Excerpt from an interview with David Sheff, best-selling author and journalist, who interviewed Jobs for Playboy Magazine in 1985. Sheff describes Sean Lennon’s ninth birthday party and Jobs’ gift to Sean of a Mac computer equipped with the MacPaint program. MacPaint captures the attention of Andy Warhol, a guest at the party.
2) Excerpt from an interview with Walt Mossberg, principal technology columnist at The Wall Street Journal, in which the relationship between Bill Gates and Jobs is dissected. Robert Cringely, writer and host of the PBS series TRIUMPH OF THE NERDS: THE RISE OF ACCIDENTAL EMPIRES, is also featured.
PBS will stream STEVE JOBS — ONE LAST THING in its entirety on pbs.org/video beginning Thursday, November 3, 2011, the day following the broadcast.
