You expect to see your neighbours outside on the street where you live.
But what happens when you meet them in the cancer ward, and you’re all wearing matching hospital gowns?
That’s what happened to award-winning filmmaker Gerry Rogers, who was in hospital for her second mastectomy. Directly across the hall was Leida Finlayson with melanoma, and just up the corridor was Ken Hickey with a rare form of pancreatic cancer.
It turns out they all live just a few doors from each other on Pleasant Street.

THE MCCURDY BIRTHRIGHT
In the 1980’s Howard McCurdy was a feisty Member of Parliament from Windsor, the the first black NDP MP and the only black in the House of Commons at the time. He was known for his interest in civil rights, for people of all races and colors. It’s a passion he inherited from many McCurdys before him.

The Arctic and Antarctic experience the most extreme seasons on Earth. Time-lapse cameras watch a colony of emperor penguins, transforming them into a single organism. The film reveals new science about the dynamics of emperor penguin behaviour. In the north, unique aerial images show a polar bear swimming more than 100km. Diving for up to two minutes at a time. The exhausted polar bear later attacks a herd of walrus in a true clash of the Titans.

ABOUT OUR SCHEDULES
We try to be as accurate as possible with our newsletter but we cannot reflect last minute changes in programming on CBC Newsworld and CBC-TV.
We also cannot reflect LOCAL changes in programming. Not all local CBC affiliates offer all available CBC programming. Please check with your local cable providers for this information.
All CBC Newsworld air times are listed in ET (Eastern Standard), which means that the air times must be adjusted for other regions. All CBC-TV programs air at consistent times across the country (with the exception of Newfoundland which is delayed by a half hour). Please check the CBC.ca Program Guide to confirm local times.
