Internet:TCI was the earliest nationally televised program focused on the Internet. Internet:TCI was produced starting in 1995 by TCI Cable-vision as part of an effort to promote emerging able modem technology back in a time when the typical connection was at 28.8 kbps. The program is hosted by Charles Severance and Richard Wiggins. The producer/director of the program was Amy Leahey and the Executive Producer was John Liskey. The program had several segments: Opening/Welcome, Internet For Everyone (based on the book of the same name by RIchard Wiggins), Internet Interview, Chuck and Rich on the Road, and Net Surfing. Probably the most interesting and valuable contribution of this video is to take people back to a time when the Internet was just emerging and mostly the domain of a few lucky academics. The lack of sophistication on web page design is pretty funny to see.
