"Technology is so mainstream nowadays - at work, at home, at school– all our lives are affected by, or in thrall to, the onward march of technology - and it's important we try to keep the Sky News audience abreast of developments," Stanford said.

Technology Unplugged will see Stanford joined for a half hour show by high profile guests and a 'tech review' panel of journalists and practitioners will discuss the latest phones, computers and software.

The show starts on Friday, 4 December and runs weekly from 7:30 to 8pm.
