For many people who have not grown up with computer technology, computers can be scary things. This film documents the progression of retired people across Yardley Constituency as they learn basic computer skills. Amongst other things, they are shown how to e-mail friends and family, contact local councillors and search the Internet for relevant information. This project transformed the lives of participants, putting them in contact with friends, family and a world of information.
