Summary

A series of films exploring the idea that humans have been colonised by the machines they have built, seeing everything in the world today through the eyes of computers. This episode looks at why we humans find this machine vision so beguiling. The argues it is because all political dreams of changing the world for the better seem to have failed - so we have retreated into machine-fantasies that say we have no control over our actions because they excuse our failure.
