wrt The Machine That Changed The World, I strongly suggest anyone in/going to Silicon Valley visit the Computer History Museum.  They have a functioning Babbage Engine.  Couldn't tell you how it works, but from a historic standpoint, as well as industrial 'sculpture,' if you will, it is fascinating.

Being a former Navy 'Nuke' (as is Rad), I found this a very interesting and thought provoking documentary, albeit a bit slanted but honest.  Check CNN listings, it is showing today (09Nov13).

i've never heard of that doc. clever title.

not many docs on nuclear pwr out there.

here's the description from the site:

Quote:
A feature-length documentary about the history and future of nuclear power. The film explores how and why mankind's most feared and controversial technological discovery is now passionately embraced by many of those who once led the charge against it. Operating as history, cultural meditation and contemporary exploration, PANDORA'S PROMISE aims to inspire a serious and realistic debate over what is without question the most important question of our time: how do we continue to power modern civilization without destroying it?
