8:30 Window on the World

But today in the age when social media and the internet could be seen as a way of bringing people together more than ever, the opposite is happening.

Our Window on the World tonight concludes a two part  BBC World Service  series looking at  how we cooperate today and why it can go wrong when we communicate online.
