Beeban Kidron's documentary about the internet is entertaining and enlightening, but when it comes to teen users, the tone veers towards moral panic.

Beeban Kidron's smart and serious documentary offers a survey of the virtual world's creeping infiltration into our lives – and a warning.

A more balanced, less neurotic viewpoint would have made it a far more powerful documentary.

It's unsettling viewing, and smartly sidesteps allegations of parental paranoia by talking directly to those "digital natives" whose lives are being transformed (for better and worse) by the web.
