The Morningside World of Stuart McLean + The Modern Ark
At 2pm Thursday and repeated Saturday at 1 am and 5pm (ET):
Stuart McLean on Morningside- the early days of one of Canada's great story-tellers.
1984, a young journalist named Stuart McLean was hired on as a
columnist for CBC Radio's weekly morning program Morningside with Peter
Gzowski. His job was to bring extraordinary stories of everyday
Canadian life. It was tailor-made for his unconventional reporting
style. It was also a goal he'd been pursuing for over a decade. Rewind
presents three of his finest.
At 1 am, 6 am and noon (ET):
A look at the modern ark- the zoo. Animals have been in display for the
entertainment of humans for centuries. But in recent years some zoos
have been trying to provide more naturalistic habitats and better care.
Others keep their animals in dirty and unsafe conditions.
The documentary first aired in October 1993 on the program Sunday Morning.
