SATURDAY February 9

0730 You probably use them every day---social networking websites such as Facebook and Twitter. But they're just the tip of the iceberg---what about Instagram, Tumblr, Google Plus, Flickr...well, you get the idea. Why are there so many of these websites and do we really need all of them? Rhonda McEwen, an assistant professor of New Media at the University of Toronto - Mississauga's Institute of Communication, Culture and IT and Monico Santiago, a second-year student at the Institute joined Mary to to explain.

0800 Valentine's Day is almost here. And Valentine's means...kissing. That prompted Thom Ernst from TVO's Saturday Night At the Movies to join Mary to talk about Hollywood's treatment of "the smooch", including his personal list of Most Memorable Screen Kisses.
Listen audio (runs 9:46)

5/ Planet of the Apes (1968) - an inter-species kiss between Charlton Heston as Astronaut George Taylor and Kim Hunter as Zira in full Ape Make-up.

4/ In & Out (1997) directed by Frank Oz. Between Tom Selleck and Kevin Kline

3/ Lady and the Tramp (1955) The Italian Restaurant - pasta scene.

2/ Notorious (1946) Alfred Hitchcock - between Ingrid Bergman and Cary Grant. Famous because censor code at the time stated no kiss could last longer than 3 seconds. Grant and Bergman's characters start kissing on an apartment balcony - moves into the apartment. The kiss lasts 3 minutes, but is broken up in 3 second segments thereby staying with code rules.

1/ From Here to Eternity (1953) between Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr. Iconic image of couple on beach, impervious to the water that rushes over them. Passionate and unbridled.

0830 It's Hockey Day In Canada. Peterborough is the epicentre of this annual celebration. And Peterborough is home to the Petes of the Ontario Hockey League. Mary talked with three Peterborough residents about the long and storied relationship between the team and the city. Rose Powers is president of the Peterborough Ice Kats...the girls hockey association in Peterborough. Brent Tully played for the Petes in the 1990s as well as for two gold medal-winning Canadian World Junior Hockey teams, and Ed Arnold is the former managing editor of The Peterborough Examiner and the author of several books about Peterborough's hockey heritage. He's also writing a new one detailing a year in the life of the Peterborough Petes.
