Long before names like Gates and Iacocca made headlines, Thomas Watson, Sr. was famous for the company he ran and the money he made. Strangely, however, no major filmed biography of the life and legacy of Thomas Watson has ever been produced. Why? The answer lays in the powerful and often impenetrable corporate culture that Watson himself created. For decades after his death, IBM cautiously guarded the files and personal correspondence of the man who built the empire. Only recently have the corporate archives of IBM been unsealed, revealing a richly layered story of a man's life and of America's rocky journey into the Information Age.
Watson is a two-hour documentary, produced by Emmy Award-winning writer and filmmaker Brian Frey.
