HOTSHEET FOR WEEKEND OF JANUARY 20 & 21, 2007

SATURDAY JANUARY 20, 2007

1. THE HOUSE:

The Harper Government is promising a greener agenda, and this week it's been on a mission to prove it. Money has been set aside for research into clean technologies, for wind turbines, and for home retrofit programs. But what's the difference between these new Conservative programs and the Liberal programs the government recently cancelled? Also on The House, the challenges facing rural Canada. That's on The House with Kathleen Petty, Saturday after World Report at 9 a.m. (9:30 NT) on CBC Radio One.

2. GO:

Brent Bambury lights the fuse on another explosive Go session this Saturday. Special guest hip hop heartbreaker Kinnie Starr hooks up with an array of traditional musicians and killer arranger Cameron Wilson. It's cello, violin and bass clarinet on the rocks - with a twist of funk! Also, is Vancouver home to Canada's finest orators? Listen in as three West Coast lecturers from the ever-popular Strip Mall series spin the yarn on topics we don't usually learn about in school. Go, from CBC's command post on the West Coast. Check it out, Saturday at 10 a.m. (10:30 NT) on CBC Radio One.

3. AND SOMETIMES Y: ***also heard Tuesday at 11:30 a.m. (noon NT) on CBC Radio One***

E-communication - boon to civilization or simply more destructive than it's worth?

Think of all those emails that are misinterpreted... e-mails that ignite fights with friends and co-workers. Not only does email lend itself to miscommunication... but grammarians also blame email and text messaging for the destruction of standard written English. This week, And Sometimes Y host Russell Smith takes on the critics. Maybe texting has its own grammar. That's And Sometimes Y, Saturday morning at 11:30 (noon NT) on CBC Radio One.

4. QUIRKS AND QUARKS:

Are you thinking of travelling to Australia, but are balking at the length of the flight? Well, good news: Australia is getting closer to us every year. In fact, given enough time, you'll be able to drive there. Of course, that amount of time is two-hundred-and-fifty million years, but on a geological scale that isn't too long. Figuring out what's going to happen to our planet that far in the future is called geo-forecasting, and it's a serious scientific discipline, complete with differing theories and competing camps. This week on Quirks and Quarks, get the long term forecast for the planet. That's Quirks and Quarks, with host Bob McDonald, Saturday afternoon after the noon news (12:30 NT) on CBC Radio One.

5. DEFINITELY NOT THE OPERA:

This Saturday, DNTO is digging deep, beneath all the layers to bring you a very special peek at...wait for it.....underwear! Word expert Katherine Barber has the , um, lowdown, on the origins of gitch, gotch, and going commando; comedian Trish Cooper tears a strip out of La Senza Girl; and DNTO explores the final frontier of undies: second-hand underwear. As well, Metric frontwoman Emily Haines drops by the DNTO studios, and you'll hear the soulful Ben Harper caught live in concert. That's on Definitely Not the Opera Saturday after the one p.m. news (1:30 NT) on CBC Radio One.

6. TERRY O'REILLY AND THE AGE OF PERSUASION: ***CLIP AVAIL SEE FRI HOTSHEET***

It's all about "The Persuasive Power of Storytelling" this week on O'Reilly and the Age of Persuasion. Terry examines ways in which storytelling is hard-wired into the human brain, and how stories have become one of the most powerful tools in the modern craft of persuasion. He'll play classic 'storytelling' ads, and explain why they pack so much 'oomph' compared to their lowly 'price & item' rivals. That's Terry O'Reilly and the Age of Persuasion, Saturday afternoon at 4 (4:30 NT) on CBC Radio One.

7. TALKING BOOKS:

Face "The Omnivore's Dilemma" this week on Talking Books, as Ian Brown and his guests tackle Michael Pollan's troubling book, sub-titled "A Natural History of Four Meals". It's a startling look at what is really in our food - and the real cost of cheap food. That's on Talking Books, Saturday afternoon at 4:30 (5 NT) on CBC Radio One.

8. THE WORLD THIS WEEKEND:

This week's CBC News investigative series "Out of Synch" touched a nerve with listeners. The stories looked at gaps in workplace safety inspections...and how all kinds of jobs are not even subject to health and safety audits. Also, just what is considered a workplace injury: should stress be included? The result....a flood of personal stories and opinions to a web forum on CBC.CA. Reporter David McKie opens the mailbag to share those stories...and where the debate goes from here, Saturday on The World This Weekend with Lorna Jackson, at 6:00 pm (7 AT; 7:30 NT) on both CBC Radio One and CBC Radio Two and on Sirius Satellite Radio Channel 137.

9. THE DEBATERS: ***also heard Monday at 7:29 p.m. (8 NT) on CBC Radio One***

Is an arranged marriage really the way to go? Should people really be introducing themselves to each other on their wedding night? Is a chance meeting that leads to love and marriage better? Or is it just assumed that a first marriage is the rehearsal for the real thing? This week on The Debaters, Diana Frances and Veena Sood (as The Maharani) debate the subject of arranged marriages in the age of internet dating. Then Irwin Barker and Sean Proudlove peer into a cloudy, smoke-filled room and try to bring some clarity to the subject of marijuana trafficking. After all, if everybody's doing it somebody's got to be growing it. That's on the Debaters, Saturday evening at 6:30 (7:30 AT, 8 NT) on CBC Radio One.

10. RANDY BACHMAN'S VINYL TAP:

13. SATURDAY NIGHT BLUES:

A student of the Piedmont style of acoustic blues, Tim shares his encyclopedic knowledge of the history of blues, and plays some of his own songs live in studio.

Sunday Showcase kicks off a six-part series called "Little Italies" this week, hosted by award-winning author Nino Ricci. The series is an imaginative journey through one of Canada's oldest and largest immigrant communities, the Italians. This week, "Shades of Mussolini" by Emil Sher, adapted from "La Fresque de Mussolini" by Filippo Salvatore. In a Montreal church, to this day, there stands a fresco of the Italian dictator Benito Mussolini that is now regarded mainly as a historical curiosity. But in the pre-war Italian community that gave birth to it, that fresco was the flashpoint for historical forces that pitted Italians against each other in the context of the broader political turmoil in Canada at the time, one that was particularly volatile in Montreal, which saw even respected figures flirting with the Fascist cause. The result was a highly polarized environment where choices were much grayer than they might seem to us today and where even love could become a political act. "Shades of Mussolini", this week on Sunday Showcase starting at 10 p.m. (11 AT, 11:30 NT) on CBC Radio One.

1. THE CURRENT:

The Internet has made just about everyone who has a computer a potential journalist. Now a citizen journalism website has hired a sex trade worker to cover the trial of Robert Pickton.

8. THE WORLD THIS WEEKEND:

"The Producers" became a very successful musical on stage and screen....built around

a hilariously tasteless play called "Springtime for Hitler". The play is supposed to be a money losing folly, but becomes an unintentional camp hit. Not quite the same can be said about an attempt to do the real thing. There's new film in German theatres....a comedy about Hitler. It's getting a decidedly mixed reception. Critics are divided over whether it's because of the subject matter....or it's just not funny. Andrew Parker reports from Germany, Saturday on The World This Weekend"

--- WEEKEND HOT SHEET, SUNDAY JANUARY 14, 2007 ---

1. THE SUNDAY EDITION:

Millions of people around the world would give their eyeteeth for a Canadian passport. But that doesn't necessarily mean they'd want to live here. Many Canadians were shocked last summer when, during the war in Lebanon, it was revealed that an estimated 50 thousand Canadian citizens lived in Lebanon. In fact one-point-seven million Canadian citizens live permanently in other countries. Stephen Harper's Conservative Government is conducting a review of the meaning, rights and responsibilities of being a Citizen of Canada. This week, The Sunday Edition gets the ball rolling with a look at what it means - the rights and the responsibilities of being a Canadian citizen. Join host Michael Enright for The Sunday Edition, right after the 9 a.m. news (9:30 NT) on CBC Radio One.

2. VINYL CAFE:

Head for the Vinyl Cafe this weekend. Host Stuart McLean catches up with Kyle, the young recipient of one of this year's Arthur Awards.

4. THE INSIDE TRACK:

He's an unlikely hero.

Hear his story, and find out why everyone likes him so much, on The Inside Track, with Robin Brown, Sunday afternoon at 1:30 (2:00 NT; 4:30 PT) on CBC Radio One.

5. TAPESTRY:

Albert Einstein once said there were two things that could inspire him to the point of being awestruck: "the starry heavens above and the moral universe within." What happens, then, when 'the starry heavens above' are blotted out by the lights of a city? When the night sky has to compete with a television set for an evening's entertainment? When the moon and the stars are given just a fleeting glance as you run from the car to your house? Theology professor Dale Allison has been giving this a lot of thought, and in his words the retreat of the stars has not been trivial. Dale Allison joins host Mary Hynes on Tapestry, Sunday afternoon right after the 2 p.m. news (2:30 NT, 4 MT, 3 PT) on CBC Radio One.

Join host Rex Murphy, Sunday on Cross Country Checkup, Sunday afternoon from 4 until 6 (EASTERN) on CBC Radio One.

8. THE WORLD THIS WEEKEND:

The 1992 Westray mining disaster was supposed to lead to meaningful change in workplace safety. Laws were put in place that would make executives criminally liable for negligence that puts workers' lives in danger. Almost 15 years after that disaster, there hasn't been a single conviction. Unions have been pushing provinces such as Nova Scotia and B.C. to go after employers...without success. Sunday on The World This Weekend, CBC News kicks off a special series of reports called "Out of Synch"...an analysis of workplace safety inspections that found inspectors are "out of synch" with the nature of today's workplaces.

FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH:

Just as you're struggling with your New Year's resolutions, CBC Radio News presents Fountain of Youth - an examination of society's growing obsession with staying young, looking good and acting hip.

CBC Radio News presents five days of special programming on World Report; The World at Six; The World this Hour; The World this Weekend and Radio Syndication. Today¿the number of cosmetic procedures in Canada is booming, as it is in the rest of North America. And as prices come down and the range of available procedures grow - from Botox injections to full face-lifts and tummy tucks - the trend is expected to continue skyrocketing.

1. THE HOUSE:

.

Canadians are moving to town. It's not a new development, but it's part of the challenge facing rural Canada. This week, The House looks at the economic decline in rural Canada, from the dreams of man who is the last in his family line to farm and his efforts to save his prairie town to author Donald Savoie's new book, which urges advocates government intervention to jump-start the economy of the Maritimes. But should we take a tough love approach? Are politicians too scared to tell people they have to move from depressed areas to find work? Also, a look behind this week's cabinet shuffle.

That's And Sometimes Y, Saturday morning at 11:30 (noon NT) on CBC Radio One.

4. QUIRKS AND QUARKS:

Are Humans Still Evolving? Evolution has made us what we are today, and we're increasingly learning what made modern humans different from our ancestors. But many scientists think that we have now removed nature's control over our genetic legacy. Our technology allows us to control our environment and survival to the degree that we may have stopped human evolution altogether. Is our growth and development as a species at a standstill? If not, what will we become in the future? Find out this week on Quirks & Quarks, with host Bob McDonald, Saturday afternoon after the noon news (12:30 NT) on CBC Radio One.

8. THE WORLD THIS WEEKEND:

Books such as "French Women Don't Get Fat" continue to climb their way up the best-seller list, but the reality is that the French, like Canadians, are getting heavier and heavier. France's health minister refers to obesity as the most serious epidemic facing the country. As Genevieve Oger reports from Paris, public health officials are trying to grapple with the phenomenon. And in some ways, they're being more radical than in Canada: junk food and pop vending machine have been banned in schools and starting in February, food advertisers will have to include a healthy eating message in their ads, or pay a tax. One of the targets is childhood obesity, a harbinger of things to come.

HOTSHEET FOR WEEKEND OF DECEMBER 23 AND 24, 2006

SATURDAY DECEMBER 23, 2006

1. THE HOUSE:

On The House this week, host Kathleen Petty reviews some of the best political books this year. Among the authors on the program... two party insiders - albeit on opposite sides - who have written books this season. Jean Chretien's right-hand guy Eddie Goldenberg and Brian Mulroney's chief of staff Hugh Segal review each other's books. Get that last-minute book idea on The House, Saturday after World Report at 9 a.m. (9:30 NT) on CBC Radio One.

2. GO:

This Saturday morning Brent Bambury opens up a big bag of loot on GO. Kliph Nesteroff drops by with some festive holiday vintage vinyl and Go's own Santa, Contest Girl, and her eight tiny reindeer present the last thrilling listener challenge of the year. They're spikin' your cider with some chill-out tunes and Brent tells a story of the true meaning of Christmas. Don't forget to leave out the milk and cookies.

That's Go, Saturday at 10 a.m. (10:30 NT) on CBC Radio One.

3. MAN, WOMAN AND CHILD:

"Janet's Party" this week on Man, Woman and Child. John's neighbour (and his wife's best friend) Janet throws a Christmas party where the expected happens. And John's parents arrive for the holidays. Rosemary Dunsmore and Chuck Shamata guest star, on Man, Woman and Child, Saturday morning at 11:30 (noon NT) on CBC Radio One.

4. QUIRKS AND QUARKS:

The Physics of Santa this week on Quirks and Quarks. How does Santa manage to make it around the world in a single day, get down millions of chimneys, and deliver presents to all those children?

Plus he takes advantage of the Ho-Ho-Holes in the time/space continuum. Find out more, on Quirks and Quarks, with host Bob McDonald, Saturday afternoon after the noon news (12:30 NT) on CBC Radio One.

5. DEFINITELY NOT THE OPERA:

6. TERRY O'REILLY AND THE AGE OF PERSUASION:

"The Long & Short of It" this week on O'Reilly and the Art of Persuasion. Modern messaging has been shortened, truncated, condensed and compacted. But at what cost? 500-word print copy have made way for zippy buzz phrases. The lost art of political oratory has been compressed to fill 9-second sound bites. Terry explains why this trend is sucking the soul out of the art of persuasion. Terry O'Reilly and the Age of Persuasion Saturday afternoon at 4 (4:30 NT) on CBC Radio One.

8. THE WORLD THIS WEEKEND:

There's a linguistic battle being fought around the world -- by cultures as diverse as aboriginal Canadians, the citizens of Ireland, and the Uyghurs of China. It's the fight to keep ancient languages alive. Languages that are spoken less and less often. For Jewish people that language is Yiddish. It was once spoken by millions of Jews, particularly in Eastern Europe. The Second World War changed that forever. Now, as the last generation of native Yiddish speakers is dying, there is a race against the clock to keep the language alive. Saturday on The World This Weekend, Marsha Lederman reports.

The Debaters is the weekly comedy show that pits some of the funniest people around in a heated battle of funny and fact to win over the hearts of a tough audience. Shaun Majumder moderates again this week as two topics come up for debate. First, Winnipeg's Bruce Clarke goes up against Vancouver's Gary Jones on the issue of colonizing space.

Then Deb Williams and Diana Frances peel back the layers of make-up and silicone to see just how much plastic surgery is too much. That's this week on The Debaters, Saturday evening at 6:30 (7:30 AT, 8 NT) on CBC Radio One.

10. RANDY BACHMAN'S VINYL TAP:

Randy Bachman will be rockin' around the Christmas tree this week on Vinyl Tap.

Alan Neal digs into the country roots of two powerful crooners this week on Fuse. Jim Cuddy may be best known for co-fronting Canada's beloved Blue Rodeo. But on his own, he sings songs of sweet longing. Jim's Fuse partner, Oh Susanna, can stop a roomful of people in their tracks with her strong, clear voice. Together, the song themes are dark but the music is pure beauty. That's Fuse, Saturday at 9 p.m. (6 p.m. AT, 6:30 NT) on CBC Radio One.

12. A PROPOS:

Again this week, A Propos host Jim Corcoran is proposing the gift of music for Christmas. Comfort and joy in music - what a wonderful gift! Hear Jim's suggestions: great albums that came out this year in Quebec, from veterans such as Michel Rivard and Pierre Flynn to newcomers Andréanne Alain and Mike Prévost. Join Jim Corcoran for A Propos Saturday at 10:00 p.m. (10:30 NT) on CBC Radio One.

13. SATURDAY NIGHT BLUES:

It's the Annual Christmas show this week on Saturday Night Blues! In Hour One, rare Christmas blues, when special guest Roy Forbes brings some of his favorite seasonal 78s to play for you.

1. THE SUNDAY EDITION:

A moment that may live forever in radio - and musical - history. Michael Enright learns to sing this week on The Sunday Edition. He, famously, didn't learn to skate until just a few years ago. But all that took was ice and a degree of physical courage. Now, he's ready to add to his already impressive range of skills by having three vocal coaches come in to teach him all they can, in one brief lesson, about pitch, range, and hitting a note out of the ballpark.

Kathleen Petty sits down with US Ambassador David Wilkins and new Liberal leader Stephane Dion this week on The House.

Radio One.

The avowed aim of the talks is to see if Iran might help with the situation in Iraq. But Iranians are unsure of American motivation. Nationalists see the U-S trying to deny Iran a technological development that they say is their right -- nuclear power. And as Reese Erlich reports, even Iranians who oppose their government say American sabre- rattling over the issue doesn't benefit Iran. That's Saturday on The World This Weekend with Lorna Jackson, at 6:00 pm (7 AT; 7:30 NT) on both CBC Radio One and CBC Radio Two and on Sirius Satellite Radio Channel 137.

Randy will play some tunes that listeners have been asking about plus fill in some missing doo-wop masterpieces.

He'll bring an assortment of guitars and share a bit of the history of them and tell you where you can hear them in popular music.

The ancient practice of royally commissioned praise songs meets the free market this week on Global Village - and some say it puts music on a slippery slope in the Democratic Republic of Congo. An American band has a great time recreating ancient China in the Forbidden City while a Chinese rocker often finds his music forbidden. And music - like everything else - finds itself at a crossroads in Cuba. On Radio Two and Sirius 137 only, Toronto's Brazilian music pioneers Parabolica recorded live.

5. QUIRKS AND QUARKS:

Eat Your Words¿this week on Quirks and Quarks. For most of us, sitting down with the newspaper and a cup of coffee involves two separate sensory experiences. One is the process of reading the paper. The other is tasting the coffee. But for a very small group of people, these two separate experiences become one. Reading a newspaper can evoke strong tastes. Even hearing certain words can cause these people to sense the taste of specific foods. The phenomenon is a form of synesthesia - a rare condition in which a person's senses become crossed. Imagine hearing the word "castanets" and tasting tuna fish. Or tasting sausage when you hear the words "Roger", "Regina", "register", or "edge". It gives a whole new meaning to having a taste for literature. Find out more on Quirks and Quarks, with host Bob McDonald, Saturday afternoon after the noon news (12:30 NT) on CBC Radio One.

1. THE HOUSE:

Alberta Tories are choosing a new leader this weekend. On his last day in office, Premier Ralph Klein sits down with Kathleen Petty on The House. Also, a look at a proposed new law against driving while on drugs: is it constitutional to force people to give blood, saliva and other samples? And that "nation" thing.

Most major industries take backing up data very seriously, with complete archives stored far away from their main computers. But what would we do if there were a major disaster? What if the entire planet were wiped out? It might sound like a concept best dealt with by science fiction, but it's a scenario some researchers take very seriously. Around the globe, scientists and archivists are working on systems for saving everything, from the smallest microbes to the biggest ideas.

"Neil Young has a bad singing voice" must be among the Top Ten things not to say at a Canadian dinner party. You're bound to be confronted by one of his biggest fans, who trembles with delight at the sound of his "dulcet tones". So what makes a bad singer then, if Mr. Young doesn't qualify? This Saturday, Go sets out to unearth the ghastliest sounds ever to emit from a musician's voice box.

4. QUIRKS AND QUARKS:

The King of Infinite Space this week on Quirks & Quarks. What do the Internet, triangles and sunflowers have in common? They can all be described using geometry. Geometry, or the study of shapes, is one of the oldest forms of mathematics. Today, it's a central part of modern technology, especially in computing. But during the bulk of the twentieth century, geometry was scorned. Most serious mathematicians weren't interested in shapes; they preferred to work with abstractions and formulae. But standing firm against the tide was a Canadian mathematician. Dr. Donald Coxeter is often referred to as the man who saved geometry. From his office at the University of Toronto, he kept the field of geometry alive through its dark ages, saving it from obscurity.

10. RANDY BACHMAN'S VINYL TAP:

But as we wait for the Harper Government's new plan to improve "productivity" our workplace reporter Frank Koller explores the question: Are workers right in thinking productivity does little for them?

15. OCTOBER 1970:

In October 1970, the political landscape of Canada changed forever. Tanks roamed the streets of Montreal and soldiers in full battle gear raided homes in their hunt for "terrorists" - members of the Front de libération du Québec (FLQ) . British diplomat James Cross had been kidnapped and Quebec Labour Minister Pierre Laporte had been murdered. It was the largest manhunt in Canadian history. Bewildered citizens wondered what was going on. How far would Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau go? "Just watch me," he said. Three days later, he invoked the War Measures Act and a nation waited with civil rights suspended. Tonight, CBC Television kicks off an eight-part drama that's equal parts detective thriller, hostage drama and a political nail-biter. Don't miss Part One of October 1970, tonight at 9 p.m. on CBC Television.
