In around ten minutes we have Newswatch. First, it is time for


Click. We have a great show for you this weekend, including... And, a


look at an amazing... It should be a long shot, unless she manages to...


Welcome to Click. The makers of TV documentaries try to capture real


life on camera. People behaving naturally with honest conversations,


showing true emotion. Even though they have agreed to be filmed, it


can be difficult to act naturally when you have this motley crew in


the same room as you. Give us a wave. In order to not to intrude, we


have used longer lenses, remote microphones, video diaries, we have


built whole houses full of cameras. These days, the conversations we are


trying to capture don't just take place face`to`face. Younger people


especially are texting, tweeting, WhatsApping each other and if


documentary makers can't document that, they are missing half the


story. This is Channel 4's secret life of students which charts the


lives of 12 students over the first tumultuous term at Leicester


University. Alongside the visual action, we see their digital


conversations with friends and family, something billed as giving


us an instant insight into what is going on beneath their fingertips


and in their heads. It really opened my eyes to what a different


generation they are. The quantity, for starters. We had 200,000 bits of


content. They were able to say something on a text message to their


boyfriend, friend, mum, dad, that they would not say in real life. It


was something pretty standard for that generation. Production company


Raw TV, created a d`rig, allowing them to tap into the message streams


in real`time. They ran special software that captured incoming and


outgoing text messages along with those from Facebook, Twitter,


WhatsApp, Instagram and web searches and sent them to a central d`rig


viewer in the office. It is a surprise always. When Facebook came


about, the idea that you were let into other people's lives. That you


might not actually have spent a lot of time talking to or getting to


know, though on Facebook they were very honest and open and not


worrying what they were necessarily saving. Not monitoring themselves


the whole time. This is the first time digital communications have


been monitored and used in a documentary in making sure


everything was above board, legally and morally, was a big priority.


There was a long consenting process, more than you normally would with a


normal documentary. Because we have the added layer of being able to


keep their messages and go back to them and use them in the edit. We


could not keep that information. Not unless we have the consent of the


people they were communicating with. Voice calls were also recorded on


the phones, although again, only from phone numbers that had


previously consented to being recorded. The software on the phones


ensured that calls to and from numbers not on the list were never


recorded in the first place. Consented communications were stored


in the d`rig throughout the course of the filming in case the team


needed to go back to find something that became relevant later on. This


is an immediate insight into the minds of students meant that the


filming team on the ground knew exactly what questions to ask. This


was one of the students featured in the series. There were some people I


text who don't want to read their attacks. By week three, I know they


can read these messages and it gets a bit awkward. Especially when you


know the camera people have seen or heard about what you have been


texting. They might not be the people reading of them but they


might have vaguely heard, so they ask you questions about this and


that and stuff. If I told my friends at home, they would be like, why


would you ever want anyone to see your texts? Well, I don't know. It


is a new experience. Raw's next project with the d`rig focuses on


the lives of school`age teenagers. It is early days for this


technology. As this generation of hyper`connected teenagers become


adults, it could become a necessity for every documentary to capture


communications in this way in order to tell the whole story. I wonder


whether you think it is possible to document reality without tapping


into the online side these days. Why not let us know online of course? We


take another look at how tech is reflecting reality next at this week


's tech news. A leaked online document suggests


GCHQ altered internet polls, looked at private Facebook photos and sent


fake e`mails which appeared to come from BlackBerry users. It is alleged


to have been leaked by former US cyber spook, Edward Snowden. GCHQ


said he did not comment on intelligence matters. Google


partners with Novartis to develop its smart contact lenses for


diabetics. It measures glucose from tear fluid in the eye and sends


readings wirelessly to their mobile. It could make a huge difference for


the many diabetics who get glucose readings from blood tests. Google


has assembled a team of hackers to spot critical bugs and


vulnerabilities of the internet. `` on the internet. The group says they


will make public at database of bugs and fixes. They have employed one of


the most notorious hackers, George Hotz, as an intern. He faced legal


action for hacking PlayStation 3 and iPhone. Finally, Germany comes up


with a solution to stop cyber spying. A return to the trusty


typewriter. In a TV interview, the head of a parliamentary enquiry into


NSA spying in Germany said it is no joke they are considering the


technology. It might not catch on. One politician said she would rather


abolish the secret services than return to typewriters.


The Commonwealth Games begin in Scotland on Wednesday and this time


around it isn't only the athletes going for glory. This time,


spectators can compete against the world was the fastest man, Hussein


Bolt. Virtually, of course. Inside this warehouse in the south of


England, technicians and engineers test out their 16 metre long


widescreen display. This giant LED screen shows a slightly oversized


Hussein Bolt running at his fastest recorded speed, 27.44 mph. Here, the


virtual track is less than half the length it will be when fully


assembled in Glasgow ` a monstrous 40 metres. There, visitors are


invited to race Hussein Bolt over the course of the Commonwealth


Games. To get here has been no easy win. Sensor and camera positioning


is vital for this to work. And because the timing of the video


footage has to reflect precisely the actual speed of the real Bolt within


the physical TV screen, size really is everything. The ratio of the


screen makes it complex. Normally, you expect a screen to be 60:9


ratio, the standard screen you would see at what makes it different is


that where it is a running rows, it is a very long and narrow screen, so


getting the footage to work is one of the challenges `` 60:9. Yes, it


is a gimmick at a chance for the sponsor to acquire on`line


information from visitors so that it can stay in touch with them on


social networks, if you catch my drift. For the technicians, it has


given them a new experience that goes like lightning. Even if you


don't. Now, if all of that running about


sounds a bit too much like hard work, take a look at this. This is


one of the first games we have seen that uses the new version of


Microsoft's motions sensor, Connect two. On something other than an


XBox. There it is at the top of the screen, and behind it is a PC


running Windows 8.1. We are at Disney's HQ in London, because they


are the first to experiment with the new animation and Connect two.


Hence, I am pretending to be a plane and I am dumping water on the


wildfires. It goes on sale for anyone to tinker with and use with


all sorts of different kit like PCs and robots this week. The original


Connect has been used for all kinds of stuff from helping surgeons to


offering new artworks in galleries like those we saw a few weeks ago.


It is tracking 25 joints in my body as opposed to 20 in the previous


model and it can keep track of up to six people at a time, four more than


before. That's partly because the new Connect has a wider field of


vision, hence myself and Dan can stand next to each other, arms


outstretched, and play the game and it copes adequately. It can also


recognise smaller objects than the original Connect and allows you to


stand closer, which is handy if you are short of space in the living


room. Disney has to use all of that to come up with this game. Disney


previously had a job making this active promotional stand work in


cinemas or shopping centres when smaller children tried to play. That


is because the original Connect wasn't sensitive enough to pick up


the movements of small people. There are other gesture recognition


systems around, Leapmotion and DepthSense, for example. But Connect


has been most used and adapted by developers. It is a fraction more


expensive, so we will have to see if its dominance continues in years to


come. Am afraid that is it for the short version of Click. The


full`length is available on iPlayer writer. `` right now. Thank you for
