What is computer science?

What is computer science? This is a question I often get asked, or variants like, "what do computer scientists do?" Sometimes I struggle to find a simple answer. This doco from the BBC: The Secret Rules of Modern Living: Algorithms does an excellent job of explaining, at least one core aspect, of what is computer science; namely, algorithms. It also shows how essential algorithms are to modern life. This excellent doco is currently available on YouTube.
