You Have No Secrets (1992)


Introduced by presenter Andrew Waterworth, this documentary special outlines the way that data is gathered for use by governments, marketers and employers. Much of the material refers to the US but is still applicable to Australia. The documentary special features interviews with experts, ominous shots of computers with appropriate music and a warning to viewers of the intrusive power of computers swapping information.
