An interview with Stewart Cheifet re. The Computer Chronicles

One of my favorite shows when I was growing up, which I tried not to miss every week, was “The Computer Chronicles.” It was shown on PBS from 1983 to 2002. The last couple years of the show fell flat with me. It seemed to lack direction, which was very unlike what it was in the prior 17 years. Still, I enjoyed it while it lasted.

Randy Kindig did an interview with Cheifet. They talked about the history of how the show got started, and how it ended. He told a bunch of notable stories about what certain guests were like, and some funny stories. Some screw-ups happened on the show, and some happened before they taped a product demonstration. It was great hearing from Cheifet again.

  1. Thanks, Mark. Fondly remembering Saturday afternoons watching CC back when I knew even less than I do now, sucking up any computer information I could find. Byte and Infoworld at the library, MicroCornucopia in the mail, And Computer Chronicles on TV.
