Watson

In the fall of 1914, Thomas John Watson was a broken man. Fired from a job he loved and convicted of a crime he claimed to be innocent of, his future looked bleak. But Watson would turn it all around by rebuilding his life and creating one of the world’s most influential and successful companies, IBM.

Watson, a new documentary film from WSKG’s Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Brian Frey, tells the fascinating story of Watson’s rise from an impoverished childhood to a player on the world’s stage. Watson focuses on the history of IBM’s birth in Endicott, New York, and on how the company grew and evolved along with the lives and dreams of the children of the immigrants who came to the region a half century earlier.

Drawing on never-before-seen film and photographs from the IBM corporate archives, Watson tells the story of a true American original.
