Tonight:

From crisis to catastrophe. There are already unthinkable atrocities being committed in the sectarian war in Central African Republic -- and now the U.N. warns a genocide may be next. 

Subterranean gas leak blues. On the surface, Washington, D.C. looks okay -- but a new study has revealed thousands of pipes are spewing natural gas beneath the streets.

Don't keep on talkin' in the free world. Neil Young has been making a lot of noise about the oil sands, but the industry believes he should be unplugged. An interview with the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers.

How to begin, after so many endings. Nunavut's chief coroner announces an inquiry into an epidemic of suicides -- and the territory's former Suicide Prevention Advisor tells us what he thinks should be done.

A resounding success. Using sound judgment, and a gun, a British scientist creates the longest indoor echo in history -- and we'll try to get an answer from him besides "Pardon?"

And...if you do it right, the camera adds eight-and-a-half pounds. That's the weight of an Oscar -- and now, researchers have identified the formula for making a movie that will win you the Academy's approval.

As It Happens, the Thursday edition. Radio knows some movies are big -- and some are statuette-esque.
