The AT & T Archives have released an historic film produced at Bell Laboratories in 1982, entitled ‘The UNIX System: Making Computers More Productive’.

This is bound to be of interest to computer historians and fans of UNIX, one of the world’s most important operating systems.

The film, which is introduced by Victor A. Vyssorsky, then Executive Director of Research Communications Principles, is just short of half an hour long, and is viewable on YouTube in the AT&T Tech Channel.
