How the Internet is changing all aspects of our lives

Over the last 20 years, the internet became a revolution - perhaps the first truly global revolution.No-one planned it, and no-one can accurately predict its future.
SuperPower is a season of programmes across online, radio and television, investigating how the internet affects lives and has become the catalyst for a fundamental change in societies around the world.

During this season the BBC will look at how the Internet is changing all aspects of our lives. Season highlights include:

* What it means to be connected and unconnected in the digital world
* How it is shrinking the world and allowing us to experience each others lives in new ways
* How it has changed cultural attitudes to marriage, dating and disability
* Our MyWorld competition, where you can submit your two-minute film for our competition.

And we ask who is really shaping the web? Is it us - or the individuals and companies who have mastered the web?
