Summary As Information and Communication technology becomes increasingly prevalent in society there is one continent in danger of being left out of the digital revolution; Africa.

Acclaimed film-maker Willy Lindwer takes the viewer to Rwanda, Uganda, Ethiopia and Ghana to examine the different approaches and attempts to bridge the internal and international digital divide.

Countries in Africa, with the support of the UN Economic Commission for Africa, are using ICTs to provide education and health services, create competitive businesses, and to build an inclusive and sustainable information society.

There is awareness that people in the rural areas must be included in the digital revolution. How to share Information and Communication Technology (ICT) developments with the rest of the country and ultimately with the rest of the world to bridge the digital divide is the challenge.
