Oct. 4, 2006: "HotHouse" on TV tonight

CBC to Broadcast 2 Documentaries:

"HotHouse" and "Impact of Terror"

Wednesday, October 4: "HotHouse" at 10 PM ET/PT.

On Wednesday night, CBC's documentary-and-discussion program "The Big Picture with Avi Lewis" will broadcast the film "HotHouse," followed by a "spirited town hall debate." According to Lewis:

"The film challenges the black and white, 'good guys vs. bad guys' paradigm that dominates the discussion about terrorism these days. It asks complicated questions about how Israel is creating the conditions in which Palestinian leaders are emerging. It will provoke a historical discussion of the targeting of civilians by national liberation struggles -- from the IRA and the ANC to the early days of the Zionist struggle for Israel itself. And if we can manage it in the fraught atmosphere of today's debate, it might shed some light on how to shift from the extreme positions of wartime to the constructive compromises of negotiation."

CBC will broadcast the program on Wednesday, October 4 at 10 PM ET/PT. CBC Newsworld will be re-broadcast the program on Sunday, October 8 at 7 PM ET.

Thursday, October 5: "Impact of Terror"

On Thursday night, CBC will broadcast the film "Impact of Terror." Originally Broadcast June 16, 2004, Impact of Terror documents the tragic impact of the infamous Sbarro pizzeria bombing in Jerusalem on August 9, 2001.

On August 9, 2001 a young man walked into a busy, downtown pizzeria in Jerusalem carrying a guitar packed with explosives. He blew himself up, killing 15 people and injuring over 100. The victims were Jews and Arabs, young and old.

Through personal stories from survivors and families of the dead, we witness the lasting and profound impact of this horrifying event.
