TORONTO, June 7 /CNW/ - How did the Lehman Brothers collapse make us all poorer - and why did it happen? Find out in the North American premiere of The Love of Money, one of the great new documentaries on TVO. And what's the painful truth about male circumcision? Filmmaker Danae Elon explores in the world premiere of It's A Boy.
These are just two of the highlights as TVO offers a summer of new programming and a new documentary strand. TVO is also offering viewers even more opportunities to watch documentaries with a new midweek timeslot at 9 pm including a new science block Tuesdays, and point-of-view films Wednesday and Thursday. And this summer, five special themed weeks of The Agenda with Steve Paikin will make you look at current issues in a new light. All this and much more in TVO's Summer 2010 Media Highlights now available at www.newswire.ca/en/releases/mmnr/tvo/summer2010.
