AMERICAN EXPERIENCE Silicon Valley promo | PBS

Duration: 00:31
Program: American Experience

In 1957, before Apple and Google, before stock-option millionaires and billionaire venture capitalists, a group of eight brilliant young scientists defected from the Shockley Semiconductor Company in order to start their own transistor company, Fairchild Semiconductor, a company whose radical innovations helped make the United States a leader in both space exploration and the personal computer revolution, transforming the way the world works, plays and communicates. Silicon Valley premieres February 19, 2013 at 9/8c on PBS.
