Screen Grab

Presenter Claire Lim visits the Mitchell family in Ayrshire who need dramatic intervention to save them from being lost to their screens.

Screen Grab is a show that confronts the problem of excessive screen time with a radical solution. Parents agonise over how to tear their kids away from social media and gaming, all the while checking their own emails and social media or playing a sneaky game online.

The home of the Mitchell family in Ayrshire is typical of many families across the country. It has become awash with multiple screens being used simultaneously and basic eye-to-eye communication is all but lost. Presenter Claire Lim and her team of experts - family councillor Kirsty Giles and tech expert Scott McGready - introduce the family to their Screen Grab kit: sophisticated technology to show them how they have become so badly disconnected. With a dramatic intervention using the Screen Grab box, the family change their habits.
