Watch the Steve Jobs “One Last Thing” Documentary Tonight on PBS and Channel 4 in the UK [Reminder]

PBS is slated to air a new documentary on Steve Jobs tonight, November 2nd. The documentary will feature multiple interviews with several personalities that have been in contact with Jobs throughout the years, as well as rare clips from an interview with Jobs himself in 1994.

While the documentary will be airing on PBS in the US at 10:00 PM ET, the feature will also be aired on the UK’s Channel 4 tonight at 11:05 PM.

ONE LAST THING takes an unflinching look at Jobs’s difficult, controlling disposition, and offers unique insights into what made him tick. While there has been near-universal agreement that Steve Jobs was a great innovator in business and technology, ONE LAST THING looks into why he was so great. What were the influences that shaped his character? What drove him from such humble beginnings to the heights of success?

In a never-before-broadcast interview from 1994, Jobs expounds on his philosophy of life: “You tend to get told that the world is the way it is, but life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact; and that is that everything around you that you call life was made up by people no smarter than you … Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.”

People like Apple co-founder Ronald Wayne and Ross Perot will be interviewed, as well as The Wall Street Journal’s Walt Mossberg and Dean Hovey (the designer of Apple’s original mouse).

In the UK, the documentary will air under the title, “Steve Jobs – iChanged the World.”

    I get four different PBS channels and it is only one one of them so not all channels will be carrying it. Found is on PBS channel 50 in Los Angeles at 10:00 p.m. Pacific.

    The PBS iPad App CURRENTLY only gives you the option to buy the DVD, or else see a free preview.   They don’t yet offer it streaming/download.   The will likely off it later, unless it’s so good that they use is as pledge-drive fodder, in which case it will not be available free anytime soon.

    Watched it last night on Arkansas AETN Channel 2.1.  Pretty good.  I enjoyed the interviews with various people, especially with Hovey about the first Apple mouse and the guy from Pixar who got in an argument with Jobs and wrote on his white board.  Mossberg we good too.  At the end, PBS  announced a DVD is available for purchase and that the doc should be viewable online via PBS.org.

    Try looking it up on the TV Guide app; it’s showing three times in my area in the next couple days.  Search for ‘Steve Jobs.’
