Abstract:

Ghana: digital dumping ground. As the digital television conversion makes tens of millions of analog TV's obsolete, and Americans continue to trash computers and cell phones at alarming rates, Frontline/World presents a global investigation into the dirty secret of the digital age -- the dumping and dangerous recycling of hundreds of millions of pounds of electronic waste across the developing world. The report also uncovers another byproduct of our disposable culture -- data fraud, as thousands of old hard drives are finding their way into criminal hands.

Egypt: Middle East Inc. In Egypt, a country that suffers from the highest rate off unemployment in the world, Frontline/World reporter Amanda Pike finds an organization trying to cultivate the next generation of entrepreneurs. She follows along as it pits the best student companies against each other in a nail-biting competition.

Vietnam: wheels of change. In Vietnam, a country with one of the highest percentages of wheelchair riders in the world, a partnership between an American designer and a Vietnamese wheelchair factory is making a difference. Frontline/World correspondent Marjorie McAfee travels there to see how Ralf Hotchkiss' RoughRider wheelchair is providing a rugged but affordable solution for thousands of Vietnamese.
