Stella at 20 - An Atari 2600 Retrospective

In the summer of 1997, Atari veterans gathered together to reminisce about the golden age of videogames and to celebrate the 20th birthday of the Atari 2600.

These are the original, uncut interviews and discussions shot for the resulting documentary - Stella at 20. (Stella being the Atari 2600's code name during development.)

Interviews include: Atari founder Nolan Bushnell; engineers: Al Alcorn, Joe Decuir, Steve Mayer, Ron Milner; programmers: David Crane, Steve DeFrisco, Tod Frye, Rob Fulop, John Harris, Jim Huether, Larry Kaplan, Dennis Koble, Rick Maurer, Al Miller, Doug Neubauer, Carol Shaw, Bob Smith, Larry Wagner. Also included is rare footage of Atari and Amiga engineer Jay Miner from 1989.

Pretty cool stuff. Thanks for sharing. For another good one from 1998, check this out:

I haven't watched it, but I believe it's a doc about the 2600's retro gaming resurgence.
