Found this on YouTube today. Jack Tramiel is in it. Also, Jeff Minter is seen walking around with a stuffed toy llama.

Saw that a while back and came away with a different impression of Tramiel than the image I had in my head. Always thought he was a brutal tyrant manager-not that that wasn't far off. But, he came across as a likeable grand-paternal guy with some rough edges and scrappy attitude. That Bil Herd was hosting VO and on-camera was awesome. I don't know how they slowed him down enough to sit still for a few minutes of interview. He's known for his frenetic and kid like excitement. All this made for a really interesting doc that weaves the history with the personas that made them. And kudos to the production team and writers as it is a really well told story.
