Steve Jobs: One Last Thing
Wednesday, November 2 at 9pm on PBS North
Repeats on PBS 2nd Chance: Nov. 2 at Midnight; Nov. 4 at 7am; Nov. 5 at 8pm

Through interviews with colleagues and others who knew the creative genius whose innovations transformed the lives of millions, "One Last Thing" provides an inside look at the man and the major influences that helped shape his life and career. Titled as a play on the famous catchphrase used by Jobs at his product launch presentations.

In the PBS special, gain unique insight into what made Steve Jobs tick. There has been near-universal agreement that the late Apple founder was a great innovator in business and technology, but why was he great? What were the influences that shaped his character and drove him to such success from humble beginnings? With colleagues who worked closely with him and those who have chronicled his life, take an unflinching look at the mercurial, brilliant man and review his many talents and achievements.

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.”
