3-2-1 Contact! Here, a computer learns to talk. 1/14/1980 A Science show for kids from the early 1980s on PBS (USA). I loved the computer segments more than the other stuff. This one I definitely remember Aired on January 14, 1980, so I was 7 at the time. I either saw this at 7 (I watched a lot of PBS: Mr. Rogers, etc) or on reruns later.
