Screen Grab is a new 6-part series for BBC Scotland that gives us the tools we need to get our bad tech habits and reliance on screens under control.
Focusing on one family in each episode, we highlight and solve an ever-changing array of real-life issues, all impacted by the prevalence of phones, tablets, laptops, PCs, apps, games and social media in our lives.
The aim is less mindless scrolling and clicking, lots more time for other fun things. Everyone will get a personalised programme to help them stop being distracted by their screen tech, designed by a world leading tech expert.
Nir Eyal doesn’t think tech is bad. Far from it. But having made products that are designed to keep us hooked, he understands exactly how appealing and distracting they can be.
Author of a Wall Street Journal bestseller, Indistractable: How to Control Your Attention and Choose Your Life (September 2019), Nir’s going to give us lots of tips, hacks and strategies that will empower us to avoid being aimlessly distracted by the devices, apps and games so many of us have become so dependent on.
Screen Grab will help us develop more positive relationships with our screen tech, so we control it, not the other way round.
If you’d like to know more about the series and possibly take part, we’d love to hear from you. You can email the Screen Grab team at:

You and your family must be resident in Scotland but we’re hoping to speak with families from all over the country and all kinds of backgrounds.
Many thanks for your interest, we hope to hear from you soon.
