The magazine series about computers and digital communications. This week, reporter Benjamin Woolley offers viewers the chance to take interactive control, via the World Wide Web, of a robot called Nero which has been placed in the Chamber of Horrors at Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum in London. After the programme, viewers who have Internet access will be able to control Nero and see live video pictures from Madame Tussaud's.
Nero is the forerunner of projects which will dispense with the importance of geography and provide a virtual presence in remote locations which are totally inhospitable to humans.
From the United States, there is a special report on how the homeless and unemployed of San Francisco are getting online. Plus, Canadian guru Michael Strangelove gives advice on how to be a successful advertiser on the Internet. And, in the regular Hotlist spot, a cyber celebrity travels to his favourite places on the World Wide Web.

Last in the series of six programmes telling the human stories behind the multinational face of the pop music industry.

The music industry has changed. Since the sale of CBS Records to Sony (overseen by the legendary Walter Yetnikoff) and the sale of Virgin Records, the only major independent label left by the early 1990s, to EMI following Richard Branson's cash flow problems, the music business has gone global, carved up by a handful of multinational giants. But how can this $35 billion industry protect its corporate "assets" from the dangerous effects of their own traditional lifestyle - sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll - which brought so many star-studded careers of the 1960s to a premature end?
See today's choices.
