Things like that generally show up on the CBC after a bit, Henry. We'll likely get it on The Passionate Eye or one of those shows this fall.

Yes, I listen to CBC on the 'net, from time to time. I must say, I've been impressed with the quality of your broadcasting - it wouldn't surprise me if your TV was of a similar high standard. It always amazes me just how abysmally bad TV can be in some parts of the world - it's understandable, perhaps, in countries that don't have the resources, but the millions spent elsewhere, on 'bubblegum for the eyes' is shocking. It brings in the advertising revenue, though, I suppose.

We do have some excellent programming here, Henry...mostly in the form of documentaries and news. We also buy a lot of stuff from the BBC though, which is an excellent source of documentaries.

I think my favourites from the last year were "Meet the Stans" and the one about (can't remember the name)the BBC reporter who went undercover as a cop to reveal racial prejudice in the police force. That last one left me wishing somebody would do the same here.

Yes: "The Secret Policeman". That led to a few resignations, which is nice.

In that case, you might get the mclibel documentary I mentioned earlier. Great viewing - those global corporations are a real hoot.
