Farley Mowat

For 60 years, controversial Canadian author Farley Mowat has raged against humankind's cavalier treatment of nature's resources. In more than 40 books he has documented, among other things, the cruel treatment of the Innu people and the animals of the north as well as the rape of the Atlantic Ocean by fishing nations. Mowat was "green" long before the notion became fashionable. Now, the iconic Mowat has taken a page from his own book. At age 86 and in the late autumn of his life, he is donating his oceanfront property in Cape Breton to the Nova Scotia Nature Trust - his way of protecting all the living things on his 70 hectares of land. Do as I do and as I say - the story of Farley Mowat's environmental legacy. (Original Air Date: November 4, 2007)

Grey Zone

Canada's border with the United States is well defined almost everywhere across the country. There are a few places where that line is in dispute and one of them is in the waters between Grand Manan, New Brunswick and the state of Maine. It's known as the grey zone. The grey zone is not a large area but it is rich in lobster. Canadian and American fishermen each want to fish there but the dispute has led to tensions on both sides of the border.

Hannah's Story

This engaging documentary gives new meaning to the term role model. Normally we think of children learning from their elders, but here is the story of an 11-year-old girl who is already inspiring adults to make a difference. When she was just 5, Hannah Taylor spotted her first homeless person in the back alleys of Winnipeg. This experience not only troubled her but it drove her to do nothing less than change the world, leading to the establishment of the impressive Ladybug Foundation. Under Hannah*s leadership, that charity has raised over a million dollars, literally making change for those lacking life*s basic needs. As this absorbing documentary shows, Hannah insists on being seen as normal, but clearly she possesses an extraordinary can-do attitude. Her message is disarmingly straightforward: "share a little of what you have and always care about others." Whether it's organizing Big Boss lunches, speaking to students or to a prime minister, Hannah's capacity to help others is huge, unflagging, and, ultimately, humbling. (2007 ; 29 min.)

Teenagers lap up "southern" culture and play golf on the tundra. The elders, many of them former nomads and hunters, are trying to get used to the strange feeling of staying put.

To bridge the gap between the young and old, she lets Naalak, an elder, and Danny, a young policeman from Kangirsujuaq, tell us what they think. She also speaks to her grandfather, now dead, and confides in him her hopes and fears. Above all, she askd the fundamental question: Can Inuit culture survive in the modern world?
