Original Title:


Worried by social media, the internet and kids today, Beeban Kidron interviews experts (including Julian Assange) and young netizens, from a 15-year-old porn addict to a gay teen having a virtual relationship via text and Skype. Interesting issues are raised, but this feels more like a pitch for a series than a coherent thesis.

Kidron, director of Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, puts together a dense and serious-minded study. The results feel like an intermittently fascinating springboard for something lengthier.
