The Kottke.org website brings to attention this 30-minute documentary from the 60s on the Apollo Guidance Computer.

A mid 60s American documentary illustrating the design, build and use of the Apollo Guidance Computer. From the Spacecraft Films DVD "Mission To The Moon" which contains 10 rare documentaries. Well worth the money.
