    TORONTO, Feb. 6 /CNW/ - Where do you belong if your father is from one
country, your mother is from another and you all live in a third? How do you
create a nurturing home when your family is struggling with the pull of
modernity vs. tradition? Would a world without its art masterpieces be one
robbed of its history? And, what do 42,000 tons of concrete and steel and a
bird's nest have in common? From dramas and documentaries to current affairs
and family-focused programs, TVO's March programs are sure to make you think.
    Sunday March 22 to Sunday March 29 TVO presents Belong or Bust: Where Do
I Fit In?, a week of exploration into themes of culture and identity and our
place in society. Anchoring the week is My New Home, Sundays March 22 and 29
at 8 pm, which follows immigrant children over a five-year period as they
start new lives in the United Kingdom. The world broadcast premiere of
Examined Life on March 29 at 9 pm, features intimate conversations examining
purpose in life. Weekdays during Belong or Bust week, The Agenda with Steve
Paikin discusses various aspects of fitting in, such as ethnicity, culture,
religion and nationality.
    Also this month, Thursdays March 5 and 12 at 10 pm, Masterworks presents
The Rape of Europa, an epic journey across seven countries that charts the
systematic theft, deliberate destruction and miraculous survival of Europe's
art treasures. And Thursday March 5 at 7 pm, follow the design, engineering,
and construction of one of the most ambitious projects ever attempted in the
fascinating documentary Beijing Stadium.
