In the Summer of 2001, Jason Scott, a computer historian (and proprietor of the history site) wondered if anyone had made a film about these BBSes. They hadn’t, so he decided he would.

Four years, thousands of miles of travelling, and over 200 interviews later, “BBS: The Documentary”, a mini-series of 8 episodes about the history of the BBS, is now available. Spanning 3 DVDs and totalling five and a half hours, this documentary is actually eight documentaries about different aspects of this important story in the annals of computer history.
