Don't Log Off, Series 2 Episode 1 of 3

Alan Dein sets out on a series of nocturnal excursions via Facebook and Skype, discovering the real life dramas behind the online profiles, talking to people in every corner of the globe.

Holed up in the studio late into the night, Alan makes conversation with people all over the world, talking to them about their stories and whatever else is on their mind. He never knows what he'll be hearing next.

Among those he connects with this time are a 66 year old widow in rural Texas and an 18 year old with Aspergers who makes a living playing online poker all night. He also catches up with Jennifer in Nova Scotia who featured in the last series - whose ex-husband is just about to come out of jail and marry her best friend.
