The show notes state:

"We look at how much energy digital technology is using, sharing computer power with the Ndiyo system, and recycling mobile phones to save energy."

"Welcome to Go Digital, the weekly BBC World Service programme that looks at how technology is changing our lives. Each week we explore the world of digital technology in all its forms. Almost every country on the planet has the internet and the mobile phone. The world is truly switched on to the digital age. But what does it all mean, what benefits can such technology provide, and who's in control? Tune in to Go Digital to hear the answers. Each week we will be speaking to leading figures in the computer industry. We tap into the BBC's network of reporters around the world to bring us the technology stories making the news where you are, changing the world around you."
