Introduction to the PDP 11, Unit 1, System Overview

This is a remake of the first in a set of videos produced for Digital Equipment almost 40 years ago. In 1977, I created storyboards and wrote the scripts for all 28 videotapes. They were part of a training package called “Introduction to the PDP-11”. The original videos were discovered on a computer museum website. I was thrilled to come across examples of the kinds of training packages that I worked on during my time with Digital.
