THE PASSIONATE EYE
(Wednesday September 5 at 7:30 on CBC-TV) (150 minutes)
Fahrenheit 9/11, like Moore’s Bowling For Columbine and Roger & Me, promises to expose the corporate wrongdoings and big-money scandals perpetrated by America’s financial elite. This movie, however, looks beyond the inner echelons of General Motors and Lockheed Martin in hopes of outing the evildoers in the White House, particularly George W. Bush.
In addition to criticizing the administration’s handling of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the Pentagon and World Trade Center, Moore digs deep into the surprising relationship with the Bin Laden family held by both Bush administrations, and questions whether or not potential Saudi involvement with the attacks has been ignored.

THE BOY INSIDE
Filmmaker Marianne Kaplan turns the camera on her own family, creating a rare and intimate first-hand portrait of living with Asperger Syndrome (AS)-a form of high-functioning autism characterized by socially and emotionally inappropriate behavior, and an inability to interact successfully with others.
The film follows Kaplan’s son Adam as he makes his way through Grade 7. His condition creates many challenges for him among his schoolmates and he is painfully aware of his separateness, “I have no clue, really. Am I retarded? That’s how kids make me feel. I don’t like having Asperger’s. I don’t like being considered different.”
SEX, TRUTH AND VIDEOTAPE

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.
