Great documentary on the life of Elon Musk (by Bloomberg, August 2011)

Covers his early life, leaving South Africa for college (in Canada then the US), the dot-com era (Zip2, Paypal) and finally his post-2000 companies in more depth (discussing the rocket company SpaceX, the solar panel installation company SolarCity and the electric car company Tesla Motors)

For this programme, Bloomberg conducted its own interviews directly with Elon Musk, Maye Musk (mother), Kimbal Musk (brother), Max Chafkin (Inc Magazine profiler), Franz von Holzhausen‎ (designer Tesla Model S, Model X, Model 3, and presumably also the fourth vehicle, a smaller, more affordable SUV discussed by Musk in past interviews), Steve Jurvetson (Investor, Telsa/SpaceX board member), Eric Noble (Telsa detractor, president of consulting firm Car Lab) and a few other people, as well as using a few clips from past interviews.

Here are the links to Max Chafkin's Inc Magazine profiles alluded to at 7:01 into the video

And he's only 40."
