Dr Aleks Krotoski continues her investigation into how the world-wide web is transforming society. In this second film in the series, she charts how the web is reshaping relationships to authority and forging a new brand of politics. The film features stories from the digital frontline in China, Iran and Eastern Europe and interviews with some of the web's biggest names, including its inventor, Tim Berners-Lee, as well as Martha Lane Fox, Al Gore and the founders of Twitter and PayPal. The film presents the definitive guide to how the web is redrawing the political landscape and unleashing a battle of ideas across the world. Aleks discovers how sites such as Twitter and YouTube have encouraged a rise in direct action among the world's increasingly politicised youth - but also reveals how the world-wide web has enabled governments to monitor their citizens more closely than ever before.
