Late last year, some forgotten footage of a Steve Jobs interview from 1996 was discovered in the garage of a TV director. The tape featured an epic 70 minute conversation between Jobs and Robert Clingely.

The recovered interview ended up garnering so much interest, that it actually made it into theaters all across the U.S. But don’t worry, if you didn’t get a chance to see the film, you can now rent it in iTunes…

Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview was originally recorded for a late-90’s TV documentary called “Triumph of the Nerds: The Rise of Accidental Empires.” The show spotlighted the fast-growing Silicon Valley.

Only 10 minutes of the conversation actually made it on air, but the entire thing is really worth watching. Jobs, who was still running NeXT at the time, talks about everything from his early days at Apple, to the future of personal computing.

If you want to check it out, you can rent Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview in iTunes for $3.99. Unfortunately, it appears to only be available in the U.S. at the moment. But we imagine it will start hitting other countries shortly.
