Web Junkies - China's Addicted Teens MUST SEE TV

XXXX WARNING: VIDEO CONTAINS SOME GAMING SEQUENCES XXXX

Web Junkies - China's Addicted Teens

Saw this on TV last night. Awesome. Not sure if you are outside UK if you can access this. Its available to download for 2 months.

Documentary which follows three Chinese teenagers inside a Beijing rehabilitation centre for internet addicts.

China is one of the first countries in the world to label overuse of the internet a clinical condition. To combat what authorities deem the greatest social crisis for youth today, the Chinese government has created treatment facilities to detox and cure teenagers of their online addictions.

With extraordinary access, the film shows how the teens are lured to the centre against their will by anxious parents and must endure the military boot camp conditions combined with intensely emotional counselling sessions. It documents how the boys begin to share with the health professional and their parents the reasons why they feel more connected to virtual life than their families.

A thoughtful examination of a society in flux and a technology-addled generation on the precipice of an unknown future

Possibly. If you cannot see

Possibly. If you cannot see the program when you press play that may be the reason. I thought that might happen. There are a couple of clips you might be able to see below the main player screen? Perhaps they are blocked as well.

There are ways to view bbc iplayer if you are outside the UK. I suggest you google it :)

I couldn't watch it

I couldn't watch it either. But it gives a message saying "you need to be in UK to be able to view".

I watched this too very interesting. Seems China has no missconceptions about internet and gaming abuse.

Thanks for the link! I remember watching it a few months back. It is a powerful video and very sad to see so many young and probably bright teenagers and their families caught up in this dilemma.
