    Digital Nation

    According to recent Kaiser Family Foundation data, American children aged 8 to 18 average more than 50 hours a week with digital media -- that's more than a full work week. Coming Feb. 2, 2010 to PBS, FRONTLINE's "Digital Nation" explores the implications of living in a world consumed by technology and the impact that this constant connectivity may have on future generations. In this segment from "Digital Nation," FRONTLINE correspondent Douglas Rushkoff travels to the edge of the digital frontier -- South Korea -- for a look at a country that's embraced the wired world more thoroughly than any place on Earth, and is now potentially facing a new public health crisis: internet addiction.

    A Death in Tehran

    In the height of the protests following Iran's controversial presidential election this summer, a young protester named Neda Agha Soltan was shot and killed. Her death -- filmed on a camera phone, distributed across the internet and watched by tens of millions across the world -- quickly became an international outrage, and Agha Soltan became the face of a powerful opposition movement. Through vivid eyewitness accounts of the protest and interviews with those closest to Agha Soltan -- made possible with the help of a unique network of correspondents reporting from inside and outside of Iran -- FRONTLINE sheds new light on the life and death of this young woman and the movement she helped to inspire in "A Death in Tehran," airing Tuesday, Nov. 17. In this podcast, host Arun Rath also talks with Kelly Niknejad, editor-in-chief of the Tehran Bureau Web site, about how her team is able to report news from Iran that no one else can cover, the cultural and historical context missing from much coverage in the West, and what her sources are telling her about the most recent opposition activity and protests.

In this podcast, host Arun Rath catches up with Gaviria for an update on how the families profiled in the film are faring since the initial broadcast.
