Go Digital: Your digital world
This week:
In this the final edition of Go Digital we discuss the progress of the UN's plan to connect every village in the world to the internet by 2015. As a counterpoint we speak to someone who thinks the expansion of digital technology should all be left in the hands of the free market. And we introduce our new programme Digital Planet, which you'll be able to hear on the BBC World Service from next Tuesday and download to your MP3 player in the same way as this one.

Welcome to Go Digital, the weekly BBC World Service programme that looks at how technology is changing our lives.

Each week we explore the world of digital technology in all its forms.

Gareth Mitchell in the studio
Gareth Mitchell is the never-ageing face of Go Digital. Starting out as a broadcast engineer, he traded climbing TV transmitter masts for science and technology journalism about 10 years ago. His favourite gadgets include his digital radio, digital camera and ancient Psion personal organiser

Almost every country on the planet has the internet and the mobile phone. The world is truly switched on to the digital age.

But what does it all mean, what benefits can such technology provide, and who's in control? Tune in to Go Digital to hear the answers.

Each week we will be speaking to leading figures in the computer industry.

We tap into the BBC's network of reporters around the world to bring us the technology stories making the news where you are, changing the world around you.

Go Digital will be available to as a podcast every Monday shortly after the programme is recorded at 1500 GMT / 1600 BST.

It is also broadcast on the BBC World Service radio on Tuesday throughout the day.
