Tech writer Jamie Bartlett investigates the reality behind Silicon Valley’s endless faith in its power to change the world for the better. The Tech Gods believe progress is powered by unleashing technology to tear up the world as it is and create a new one – a process they call “disruption”. This series uncovers the true scale of Silicon Valley’s global disruption – across economies, societies and democracies – driving the vast rewards flowing to the Tech Gods.

The first episode of Secrets of Silicon Valley broadcasts at 8pm on Sunday 6th August. For more information and iPlayer links please go to
