Computer History Documentaries – part 2

综合技术 2017-04-28

It’s been a while since I postedthis list of some of the computer history documentaries and dramas that I’ve found most interesting, so I have a few more to recommend and add to the list:

  • Silicon Cowboys
    – fascinating documentary about Compaq, the development of their luggable PC, and their impact on the development of the PC Compatible market. (4/27/17 – this is currently on Netflix)
  • Bedrooms to Billions – The Amiga Years
    : incredibly well put together indie documentary about the Amiga
  • Bedrooms to Billions
    : documentary about the development of the home computer games industry in the UK and Europe. Includes many interviews with the original developers and many involved in the industry at the time. If you had any interest in computer games around the mid to late 80s in the UK, this is a must watch
  • Beep
    – documentary about sound and music development for computer games
  • Get Lamp
    – documentary by Jason Scott
    , covering text based computer adventure games

Nicola Caulfield & Anthony Caulfield
(who produced the Bedrooms to Billions documentaries) currently have a new documentary called ‘The Playstation Revolution’
that just reached it’s funding goal on Kickstarter, but if you’d like to back it you can back via MegaFounder (linked from the Late Backer link on the Kickstarter page)
