The series, unveiled today by Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the world wide web, will give web users early access to programme content. Raw footage will be made available online and the production team will be seeking comment, input and story leads through the website.
Guardian tech journo Alex Krotowski will start the debate with a series of blog posts and visitors will be encourage to take part in a series of web experiments. The tasks will be developed in consultation with Sir Tim's think-tank, the Web Science Research Initiative.
The four-part series will air on BBC Two next year but the blog is live now at www.bbc.co.uk/digitalrevolution.
