PBS has announced that it will air a new, "unflinching" documentary about the late Appple co-founder Steve Jobs, who died three weeks ago. 'Steve Jobs -- One Last Thing' will air Wednesday, Nov. 2 as part of a night devoted to science and technology exploration.

In what's sure to stoke controversy in some quarters, PBS says 'One Last Thing' takes "an unflinching look at Jobs's difficult, controlling disposition, and offers unique insights into what made him tick. While there has been near-universal agreement that Steve Jobs was a great innovator in business and technology, ONE LAST THING looks into why he was so great. What were the influences that shaped his character? What drove him from such humble beginnings to the heights of success?"

The documentary features interviews with Apple insiders Steve Wozniak, Ronald Wayne and Dean Hovey, as well as Bill Fernandez, who introduced Jobs and Wozniak in Sunnyvale, where the three hung out in his father's garage and tinkered with electronics.

Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, dead at age 56There's no doubt about it: Apple is a company that has changed our lives, the way we communicate and how we interface with technology forever. Steve Jobs, the co-founder and longtime CEO, is largely to thank for that.

Just over one month after he resigned from his high-profile role as Apple's CEO back on August 24, saying he could "no longer meet duties and expectations" of the job, Jobs succumbed to his long battle with cancer today, leaving people saddened, most of them reading the news on their Mac computers or iPhones.

With iPods, iPads and iPhones as common as television sets now, Jobs' advances in technology at Apple have greatly influenced the way people watch TV, among other things, with iTunes and Apple TV continuing to grow as a source for legally downloading and watching your favorite programs, wherever you are.

In 2010, Forbes estimated Jobs' net wealth at $8.3 billion, making him the 42nd wealthiest American. Jobs is survived by his wife, Laurene Powell Jobs, and four children.
