FRONTLINE/World | Ghana: Digital Dumping Ground | PBS

Duration: 00:31
Program: Frontline/World

As this month's digital television conversion makes tens of millions of analog TV's obsolete, and Americans continue to trash old computers and cell phones at alarming rates, FRONTLINE/World presents a global investigation into the dirty secret of the digital age – the dumping hundreds of millions of pounds of toxic electronic waste across the developing world. The report also uncovers another dangerous byproduct – data fraud, as thousands of hard drives are finding their way in criminal hands. Also, in the second story, follow students in Egypt in a nail-biting competition that is inspiring a new generation of entrepreneurs in the Middle East.
