Joggins

For more than a century and a half, scientists from around the world have traveled to the shores of the Bay of Fundy to study the world-famous fossil cliffs at Joggins, Nova Scotia. This past summer, the cliffs were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a new multi-million dollar interpretive center opened to serve as a permanent home for the fossils. The cliffs at Joggins have given scientists volumes of evidence of life on earth 300 million years ago. We meet two young scientists who are taking on the role of protecting and studying the cliffs. Meet the new guardians of the Joggins fossil cliffs on Land and Sea. (Original Air Date: May 3, 2009)

Killing us softly 4

In this new, highly anticipated update of her pioneering Killing Us Softly series, the first in more than a decade, Jean Kilbourne takes a fresh look at how advertising traffics in distorted and destructive ideals of femininity. The film marshals a range of new print and television advertisements to lay bare a stunning pattern of damaging gender stereotypes -- images and messages that too often reinforce unrealistic, and unhealthy, perceptions of beauty, perfection, and sexuality. By bringing Kilbourne's groundbreaking analysis up to date, Killing Us Softly 4 stands to challenge a new generation of students to take advertising seriously, and to think critically about popular culture and its relationship to sexism, eating disorders, and gender violence.

Long road to justice : the Viola Desmond story (V2823)

This video examines the case of Viola Desmond, a successful entrepreneur who operated her own beauty parlour and college in Halifax, who was travelling from Halifax to Sydney in 1946 when car trouble stranded her for a few hours in New Glasgow. Attempting to pass the time, she bought a ticket to a movie but ran into trouble when she unknowingly sat in the whites-only section of the theatre. After refusing to move, Desmond was arrested, spent the night in jail and was tried and convicted of defrauding the Province of the one penny tax difference between a floor seat and a balcony seat. She chose to pay a fine of $26 rather than go to jail for 30 days but Desmond appealed the conviction twice, and the case was instrumental in bringing an end to segregation laws in the province. This video features both interviews and period re-enactments of Desmond's story.
