    While I haven't seen the program announced below, I know that at least a few
    prominent CMC researchers were consulted by the producers - it will be
    interesting to see how our (in the collective sense) scholarship may have
    helped shape a media presentation on media...
    I hope HUMANISTS in the U.K. will have an opportunity to view the program,
    and comment to the rest of us with their thoughts and responses. In
    particular: is the program worth ordering for those of us beyond the reach
    of Channel 4?
    Cheers and best wishes,

    Finally.....after much anticipation...

    Sex, Lies, and Cyberspace

    will be broadcast on Channel 4, UK on

    30 September 2000 (a Saturday) at 10:00pm.

    Through the lives of four people living in England, the US, and Holland, our
    film explores the idea that chat rooms speak directly to a variety of human
    instincts that in the real world find few outlets, including the need for
    fantasy play, experimentation and self-exploration, often in the realm of
    sex and sexuality.

    If you live in Britain, don't miss this enlightening programme. If you are
    outside the UK, you can order a copy of the programme by e-mailing Martha at
    info@octoberfims.co.uk . The price of the cassette depends on the volume of
    the orders we receive.

    Press inqueries can be sent to either myself at this address or to the
    director, Henry Singer at henry.singer@octoberfilms.co.uk .

    Happy viewing!
