World news on euthanasia

A one-hour TV special called "Giving Death a Hand" will be screened by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) at six different times, starting November 23. The Evelyn Martens case will be a major focus of the show. (Evelyn was acquitted of two charges of assisting suicides after a lengthy trial.)

On Nov. 23 the show will be aired on regular television (that is, not cable) as the program "Fifth Estate", starting at 9 p.m. (probably local time - in any case, the time at which "Fifth Estate" airs in your part of the world).
Americans living near the Canadian border may be able to pick up this broadcast.

The later broadcasts are on the "Newsworld" program, via cable, and the times given are Eastern Standard Time:
Friday Nov. 25, at 10 p.m. Saturday Nov. 26, at 1 a.m. and 4 a.m. and 4 p.m. Sunday Nov. 27, at 7 p.m.
