  • 5:00 am
    Silicon Valley: American Experience A startling announcement pulsated through a suburban garage in Santa Clara County, California, on October 4, 1957. There, some of the young founders of a new semiconductor company were busy talking to silicon suppliers, hounding realtors for office space, shopping for desks and poring over the names of young PhDs they hoped to poach from rival companies when they heard the shocking news: the Soviet Union had just launched the first artificial satellite into orbit around the earth. The group's leader, Robert Noyce, watched Sputnik flash across the darkened sky. He could not have known that he would play a key role in helping America win the space race. Noyce's innovation, the integrated circuit, would make an impact far beyond the Apollo program. It would shape the way Americans live, making possible smart phones and digital video recorders, pacemakers and microwaves. In telling the story of Noyce and the integrated circuit, this film looks at the monumental impact the microchip had on modern life and reveals the pivotal role Noyce played in transforming a fertile farmland into one of the most creative places on earth -- the hub of technological ingenuity we now know as Silicon Valley duration 1:25:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
  • MORNING
  • 6:30 am
    Something Ventured: Risk, Reward and the Original Venture Capitalists This program tells the story of the creation of an industry that went on to become the single greatest engine of innovation and economic growth in the 20th century. It is told by the visionary risk-takers who dared to make it happen... Tom Perkins, Don Valentine, Arthur Rock, Dick Kramlich and others. The film also includes some of our finest entrepreneurs sharing how they worked with these venture capitalists to grow world-class companies like Intel, Apple, Cisco, Atari, Genentech, Tandem and others. Beginning in the late 1950?s, this small group of high rollers fostered a one-of-a-kind business culture that encouraged extraordinary risk and made possible unprecedented rewards. They laid the groundwork for America's start-up economy, providing not just the working capital but the guidance to allow seedling companies to reach their full potential. Our lives would be dramatically different without the contributions that these venture capitalists made to the creation of PCs, the Internet and life-saving drugs. duration 1:29:00   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
