Originally aired in 1986 as part one of a trilogy, this documentary examines northern California's Silicon Valley, America's high-tech capital and the birth place of such innovative technologies as microchips, video games, and home computers. It looks at the history of Silicon Valley, and profiles the visionaries who helped lead Silicon Valley to High Tech dominance such as Douglas Engelbart, inventor of the computer mouse. A lot has changed in the years since this show was made. In 1986, Microsoft was less than $100 a share, the Mac Plus had 1 MB of RAM and a cell phone weighed about 20 pounds.
Doug Engelbart's work is featured at 31:25, with additional appearances at 13:45, and 49:15 and 56:50.
