Tuna Crisis

More than two thousand years ago Aristotle followed the movements of the noble blue fin tuna. Today the powerful fish still has the power to mesmerize us. But amazement is turning to alarm as their numbers decline dramatically in the world's oceans. Some scientists say they're on the edge of extinction and want a boycott on fishing. Still some fishermen in Prince Edward Island believe there are plenty of blue fin tuna in the Island waters. They blame regulators and European fishermen for the mismanagement of the stock.

Uranium Ban

More than a quarter century ago, Nova Scotia became the only province in Canada to impose a moratorium on the exploration for - and mining of - uranium. The decision was made by the government of the day under intense pressure from rural Nova Scotians who did not want uranium mined in their backyards. Now, the current government, wanting to capitalize on world-wide demand for all commodities, is thinking of lifting that moratorium. And, once again, many of those same ecological activists are manning the barricades, ready to battle the government so the ban is maintained. (Original Air Date: April 13, 2008)

Weight of the World : Facing Obesity

It's been called the world's first man-made epidemic, and it's killing us. In this riveting documentary, Dr. Stephan Rossner of Stockholm, an expert on obesity, leads us through startling evidence of how our society has created this toxic environment. Cheaper production, supersized fast foods, and a $12 billion advertising industry are lethal when mixed with a car-dominated culture, urban sprawl and labour-saving technologies. Although North America is the epicentre of obesity, this disease is being exported worldwide as a by-product of western culture. Featuring lively animation and hard-hitting science, The Weight of the World reveals that obesity is not an individual problem, but one that requires changes in public policies and attitudes.

You're Mean! : When Words Hurt Us

This age-appropriate program helps children understand that words can hurt—whether the insults are intentional or the inadvertent result of "trying to be funny." Four common school and home vignettes identify the power of words: a know-it-all who tries to boss others around, a playground bully who enjoys picking on other children, a teacher’s pet who relishes seeing other students make mistakes, and an older sibling whose sarcastic banter distresses her little brother. Each vignette includes a positive outcome where children find a way to stand up for themselves and overcome the power of hurtful words. Techniques include: Stand Up for Yourself, Ignore the Bully, Explain How the Words Make You Feel, and Seek Help From an Adult. (2007 ; 13 min.)
