Burt Wolf: Travels & Traditions - The History & Future of Communication, Part 2

In this second of two programs that trace the history and future of communication, Burt takes a look at some of the amazing things people are doing with their mobile phones. We see how a mobile phone mounted on the helmet of a blind skier allows her to compete in the Paralympics, how mobile phones are being used to test for vision problems in young children, and how they are being used to track sounds in the rainforest and spot illegal loggers.
