How is information and communications technology changing society? What should make us hopeful? What should make us fearful? This wide ranging documentary explores a world of threats and opportunities.
British children are spending more and more time on computers - being "raised online". What impact is this having on family life? What impact is it having on their minds? Does our increased use of computers threaten our ability to empathise with other people? And what about problems like cyber-bullying, violent computer games, and the "dark side" of the internet?
But many are benefiting from the increased access of information the internet brings. Grandmother Joan Barker is a "silver surfer". To her the technology has been a godsend, helping her keep in touch with her family wherever they are. Kirsty Palmer is visually handicapped. Computer technology has changed her life making her more independent than ever before.
THE DIGITAL DIVIDE:
Many poorer people still don't have access to the technology - and suffer because of it. Huge numbers of people in the world haven't even made a phone call, let alone used the internet. Meanwhile, more information about us is being held by government and big companies than ever before. Is personal privacy under threat?
DVD EXTRAS provide a wealth of additional material on the above topics, including extended interviews with ICT users, both young and old, as well as expert commentators.
