Computer Chess History

Various web pages date this clip, titled 'Endgame: Challenging the Masters', to no later than 2005, but I hadn't seen it before. The end credit is for the Computer History Museum.

Deep Blue beats G. Kasparov 1997 (6:07) • 'Kasparov was the World Chess Champion, the best there was. In 1997, he made history facing IBM's Deep Blue in a chess contest, where the computer won.'

For the full story, see Computer History Museum - Chess Exhibit: 'This on-line exhibition contains documents, images, artifacts, oral histories, moving images and software related to computer chess from 1945 to 1997.' The video, one of three on the subject, is filed under 'Defeating the World Chess Champion : Moving Images'.
