In an early network-TV appearance, Apple’s cofounder is already adept at explaining why computers—Apple’s in particular—will change the world. He talks about the future of Apple, Computers, the Home & Personal computer markets, video games, and more…. He talks about today.
The helmet-haired Brown talks with Jobs for almost 20 minutes in the clip, apparently in Jobs’ office at Apple’s then-headquarters on Bandley Drive in Cupertino. There’s an Apple II computer on the desk along with a photo of Barbara Jasinski, a Jobs lady friend of the time. A fuzzy version of the Apple logo hangs on the wall. Because this is raw footage, you get to see the TV-segment sausage being made: At one point, Jobs asks Brown whether they’re just chatting or the official interview has begun. At the end, an unseen female producer even feeds Brown his questions so he can re-ask them from a different camera angle.
