PBS has announced that the station will air an hourlong Steve Jobs documentary entitled “One Last Thing” on Wednesday November 2nd at 10pm ET.

The documentary will feature interviews with many of Steve Jobs’ colleagues and friends that span his career and beginnings at Apple, NeXT, Pixar, and his eventual return to Apple as its CEO.

The most interesting artifact that will surface during the airing of “Steve Jobs – One Last Thing” is a never before seen interview with Steve Jobs.

PBS had this to say about the event:

In a never-before-broadcast interview from 1994, Jobs expounds on his philosophy of life: “You tend to get told that the world is the way it is, but life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact; and that is that everything around you that you call life was made up by people no smarter than you … Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.”

Also interviewed for “One Last Thing” was Steve Wozniak, Ross Perot, Walt Mossberg, will.i.am, and Dean Hovey, who was the designer of the original mouse for Apple.

The Steve Jobs biography was released this week, and the ups and downs, triumphs, and heartache of Steve Jobs’ past are being told online and offline piece by piece.
