Since the dawn of recorded time, humankind has been inventing and then living with the consequences of technology. The current accommodation concerns “artificial intelligence,” the development and implications of the computer revolution. This landmark five-hour documentary of the origin and current status of computing raises as many questions as it answers. As we move from the industrial to the information age, it is likely that this work will stand as the first comprehensive inquiry into the nature of the relationship between people and computers. For exploring the human consequences of science and for documenting the development of perhaps the most important machine of the century, a Peabody Award to WGBH-TV, the British Broadcasting Company and NDR for The Machine That Changed The World.
