What is work? Why is it important? What's changed about work in our globalized, corporatized world? Why are we either overworked, under-worked or out of work? Why don't we have enough time for the things we say are most important in our lives? What are we 'saving time' for anyway?

This program examines work and time as intertwined problems in our fast-forward lives and why it's become increasingly harder to find balance.

Jeremy Rifkin, Matthew Fox, Paul Hawken, Barbara Moses, Sally Lerner, Stewart Brand, and 'El Vez', the Mexican Elvis impersonator, are some of the people who offer ideas on what work and time mean and how we can get to a more equitable place in our lives.
