Here are some ideas based on how far back you want to go:

Antikythera:
Complexity solved, ancient to modern

Mechanical Turk:
Fraud to God machines

Punch cards / mechanical calculators:
IO, from gears to Alpha Go

Ooh! Thanks for suggesting topics. I was actually looking for ideas on a title encompass a series that consists of topics similar to the ones you suggested!

What about Hello World! ?

I think these two words can represent much about computer science.
And you can add something else to it to sound it better...

Everyone's mind is immediately going to puns. I usually do the same, but I actually don't think there's much wrong with The history of computer science: a mini web series.

I would seriously ask some non programmer friends, maybe they come up with names that surprise you!

For example, if it were a geology mini web series I would call it: "Such things we're all made of" which is also a straight up rip off from Shakespeare's The Tempest

Well, I'm bad at naming stuff :D

I think Computer Science: the history or Computer Science through the years would be good titles

They let you know exactly what you will get :)
