Documentary: God I'm Angry
Oh, really? Tell that to Job. In the Bible, Job is known for his love and devotion to God.
Then one day - for no apparent reason - his children and everything else in his life, are destroyed.
Job gets angry. Very angry. And he directs his anger at God. Wouldn't anyone?
This week, our feature documentary, God I'm Angry, takes a look at faithful indignation, the connection between fury and belief.
It is prepared and presented by Frank Faulk.

We dug into our archives and discovered a broadcasting gem that first aired on CBC Radio in 1959.
Tony Thomas, host of the program Trans-Canada Matinée, interviewed Mary Pickford in Hollywood. We have woven together some excerpts of that program about "America's Sweetheart."
