The rise of Silicon Valley’s tech giants and the roles they play in our daily lives is to be explored in a new four-part BBC Two documentary series.
Due for broadcast next year, The Tech Transformers will show how firms such as Facebook and Google have implanted themselves into our daily lives and become an integral part of them.
Patrick Holland, BBC Two Controller, says: “Dan Reed is one of the greatest documentary makers working today and I am delighted that his exceptional talents are taking on one of the biggest stories of the modern age for BBC Two.”
Joanna Carr, Head of BBC Current Affairs, says: “The rise of global tech companies and their founder-owners represents a profound shift of the world’s economic and political power, and I’m thrilled that Dan Reed will be turning his unflinching eye to such an important subject.”
Dan Reed, Executive Producer, says: “As a storyteller, I’m excited to re-examine the key lightbulb moments in the tech sector through the intimate and personal experiences of the people on the ground.”
