In this engaging documentary, filmmaker David Bond decides to escape for a month, and let private investigators track him using whatever information they can find in the public domain. The results are astonishing, and as a range of interviewees, including David Blunkett, Henry Porter and Timothy Garton-Ash explain, the mountain of data being accumulated and centralised by the government is epic in scope, and can be devastating when misapplied. Erasing David is a timely clarion call to those of us interested in guarding our civil liberties in an increasingly invasive digital age.

“Erasing David is a wake-up call and a guide to identity self-defence for everyone. The film will empower audiences to reclaim their privacy.” - The Channel 4 BRITDOC Foundation
