In this week's programme...

eBay Watch

Five years ago everyone had a plan for doing business on the Internet.

Most of those dot com companies faded into oblivion when the bust came but one seems to have found the key to success.

The auction site eBay has created a way to make money and to form a virtual community that has grown beyond expectations.

Along the way it has changed the way we think about auctions and is starting a trend that may extend into all kinds of aspects of our lives.

Peter Day investigates.
