PBS has rolled out plans to broadcast an examination of the life of Apple icon Steve Jobs, reports Entertainment Weekly.

"Steve Jobs — One Last Thing" will premiere Wednesday, Nov. 2, at 10 p.m. ET on PBS stations. The production is a one-hour documentary about the man credited as a leading figure in the technological revolution that brought about the PC, iTunes, the iPod, the iPad and other innovations, not to mention Pixar movies.

The film is funded by PBS, Channel 4 and Mentorn International. It features interviews with Ross Perot, Wall Street Journal columnist Walt Mossberg, designer Dean Hovey and others whose lives were touched by Jobs.

The project includes footage from a previously unaired 1994 interview with Jobs, the story notes. Jobs is quoted in the story as saying during the interview: “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.”
