UK television channel BBC2 will broadcast a show that looks at the world's most powerful computer moguls Thursday December 4 at 9.50pm.

The show features Apple CEO and company co-founder Steve Jobs, and Microsoft founder and chief technology officer Bill Gates.

These two men were "responsible for the birth of modern personal computing," the report says, asking "but which of the two men is the world's most powerful computer mogul?"

Show presenter and financial analyst Alvin Hall will try to quantify the merits of both men. The show features "helpful insights from those who know them best", and will declare "who emerges at the top of the technological pile," show information says.

Born to a family of farmers in rural Florida, Hall is better known as a financial guru. A published author, he has written about investments, the stock market and more.
