THE UNIVERSE WITHIN: FROM QUANTUM TO COSMOS - THE 2012 CBC MASSEY LECTURES BY NEIL TUROK
All the technologies we use and depend on are the products of the amazing human mind. Our curiosity drives us to seek out the underlying laws of the universe, and the more we learn the better our lives become. But we're arriving at an impasse, says physicist Neil Turok: the more we learn, the more contradictory the laws seem to be. We need new ideas and new ways of thinking to go beyond the horizon.

Visit The Massey Experience website - an online exploration of the ideas, themes, theories and characters that form Neil Turok's Massey Lectures.

RETHINKING DEPRESSION, Part 3
The World Health Organization says depression is set to become second only to heart disease as the world's leading disability by the year 2020. More recent research over the past decade tells us that antidepressants do not work very well, if at all, for mild or moderate depression. And in severe depression, antidepressants only work in a small number of cases. So how can those who suffer from depression receive effective treatment and even possibly recover? In the third hour of Rethinking Depression, IDEAS producer Mary O'Connell brings us the stories of the depressed who are on the path to wellness and the methods that can be used to get them there.
