Summary:
Advances in science and technology have transformed the lives of people all over the world. However, billions of people in the developing world do not have access to even the basics of technology, which contributes heavily to malnourishment, disease and political instability. Also, because of the growing "digital divide," many people are in danger of literally being cut off from the rest of the world. This show addresses the benefits and drawbacks associated with information technologies and smart weapons, explores the hopes and fears surrounding the development of genetically modified foods, and helps students understand the debate over lowering the cost of life-saving pharmaceuticals for the world's poor. Part of the multivolume Global Issues for Students DVD Series. A Teacher's Guide is included and available online.

Only available in the US.
