‘Steve Jobs – One Last Thing’ Set to Premiere on PBS Next Wednesday

PBS’s new series, “Steve Jobs – One Last Thing” has been added to its primetime lineup and is set to air on Wednesday, November 2nd at 10:00 p.m. EST. The show will feature interviews with colleagues and friends of Steve Jobs, giving an inside look at the influences that shaped his life and career.

“One Last Thing” doesn’t hold anything back, and will take viewers on an in-depth journey into Jobs’ mercurial disposition and personal quirks. Jobs has been referred to as one of the great innovators of our time, and PBS’s show will explore the reason why. Find out how Steve Jobs transformed himself from a hippie college dropout into the man that saved Apple and revolutionized music, computers, animation, and more. 

Interviewees will include, among others: Ronald Wayne, co-founder of Apple with Jobs and Wozniak; Ross Perot, who invested in NeXT; Walt Mossberg, columnist for The Wall Street Journal, who conducted yearly interviews with Jobs; Dean Hovey, designer of the original Apple mouse; Robert Palladino, Jobs’ calligraphy professor at Reed College; and Bill Fernandez, a friend of both Jobs and Wozniak in their early years.

The show will also feature a never-before-broadcast interview from 1994, where Jobs explains 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.”

“Steve Jobs – One Last Thing” is a great companion to Walter Isaacson’s best-selling biography, which was released this week. Make sure to check your local listings for the time and tune in to PBS to catch the episode next Wednesday.
