Doc: It Wasn't Teatime
In the bad old days - and they weren't very long ago - women were barred from playing in professional orchestras. Along came the talented and daring Ethel Stark. She founded The Montreal Women's Symphony Orchestra, which eventually became the first-ever Canadian orchestra to play Carnegie Hall.
This week on The Sunday Edition, David Gutnick uncovers a remarkable and little-known piece of this country's cultural history. His documentary is called, It Wasn't Teatime.
The "Safe Streets and Communities Act" will soon be the law of the land . But will our streets and communities actually be any safer? The Americans have, of course, been down this road ahead of us. About two and a half million of them are in jail. Another five million are on probation or parole. Michael talks with University of Minnesota Law professor Kevin Reitz.
