'American Experience' documentary to tell the tale of Silicon Valley's origins

Silicon Valley may make you think of a sea of startups trying to make it big in the shadows of companies like Google, Apple, Oracle, and HP, but a new documentary in PBS’ excellent American Experience series is winding back the clock to the origins of the tech hub in Northern California. “Silicon Valley” tells the tale through the story of Robert Noyce, who co-founded Fairchild Semiconductor in 1957 and later co-invented the integrated circuit before founding Intel with his colleague, Gordon Moore.
