Bell Labs: The Transistor Milestone Event

The transistor has been honored with an IEEE Milestone in Electrical Engineering and Computing. To commemorate the historic development, a ceremony was held on 8 December at Bell Labs in Murray Hill, N.J., the place where the transistor was developed more than six decades ago. The program features highlights of some keynote speakers at the ceremony, shots of the first transistor and the exterior of the lab where it was developed, as well as brief interviews with two colleagues of the transistor inventors, the chief scientist at Bell Labs, and Bell Labs communications manager.
