The Secret Life of Machines

Oh MrX, you're my hero for mentioning The Secret Life of Machines. That show was excellent and is a great example of how different documentaries where before Discovery channel sold out in the mid 90s to the "Least Common Denominator" model of documentaries. I think the episode called "The Radio Set" is one of the best, and should be especially interesting for hackers.

You'll find yourself in good company with Tim and Rex.
