VIDEO: 1963 film about early time-sharing at MIT

from a mailing list I’m on: Dag Spicer, Archivist at the Computer
History Museum, informs me that they have obtained permission from MIT
and WGBH to post a 1964 TV episode of John Fitch, Science Reporter,
featuring MIT’s CTSS time-sharing system and an interview with MIT
Professor Fernando J Corbato.

This film was made available by Professor Morna Findlay of Edinburgh
University. According to mail from Corby, the movie was taped on 3″
magnetic tape on May 9, 1963 and aired on WGBH-TV on May 16, 1963.
