Click concludes its 'openness' series in collaboration with The Open University with a special edition of the programme recorded in front of an audience at The Open University (OU).

Gareth Mitchell is joined by Tony Hirst and Ray Corrigan from The OU to debate just how much we are in control when we log on to the internet and how much it is in charge of us. The panel also debates the merits of machine translation and what openness might mean in the near future.
