Video of Cray 1 and other artifacts...

I've just watched a few episodes of this series - jammed with interesting 
classic computer gear. Worth a watch for that alone. The whole series hasn't 
aged any better than the equipment though! Still, if anyone's keen, it's 
easy enough to track down.
On the other hand, Automan, while also featuring interesting period and 
earlier machines, is probably not worth the time/effort.
