I just finished listening to this brief BBC Radio4 series that aired last month.  It's about computer languages, with episodes on FORTRAN, COBOL, BASIC, Java, and finishing with coverage of today's Tower of Babel variety of languages.  Being for a general audience, it's not particularly technical, but the episodes are only about 15 minutes each and easy to listen to.
