Steve Jobs: Billion Dollar Hippy – BBC Documentary [Video]

Dec 17, 2011 - 8 Comments

The recently aired BBC documentary Steve Jobs: Billion Dollar Hippy may have a dumb name, but the show itself is worth a watch for anyone interested in the subject matter. About an hour long, it features classic footage of Steve Jobs, in addition to interviews with a variety of Apple execs and industry leaders, including Steve Wozniak, John Sculley, Andy Hertzfeld, Tim Berners-Lee, Avie Tevanian, and many more names that will be familiar if you follow Apple history or have read the Steve Jobs biography.

The video looks to have been posted to YouTube unofficially, so watch it while you can.

    Awesome documentary with an awesome name. The “hippy” part played so important role in Apple’s evolution.

  3. James Nimmo says:

    I watched this last night on BBC iPlayer but I don’t know if this works outside the UK.

    Watching John Sculley trying to justify and apologise for firing Jobs was interesting.

    Why do you think “Steve Jobs: Billion Dollar Hippy” was a “dumb name”? Too highbrow perhaps?

  4. Eric says:

    Lame name for an otherwise enjoyable documentary. Also, audio is better in sync for this one, but it’s not 720p

    Still can’t believe he’s gone…

      Enjoyed the programme and soundtrack too – but no music credits given at the end of the doc.

      Do you know the name of the artist/track that starts at 41 mins 47 secs in the documentary (just after Evan Davis and Stephen Fry have debated ‘style and substance’)? It plays for about 30 seconds but fades out just as the male vocal begins. (I can’t ‘shazam’ it as there is commentary over the top of it). Would like to download it… if I can track it down…
