TORONTO, Jan. 7 /CNW/ - TVO's February 2010 lineup includes programming recognizing Black History Month, an inspiring update to a powerful documentary first premiered two years ago, and intriguing dramas that will make you think.

On Wednesday February 10, Academy Award-nominated director Hubert Davis's documentary "Invisible City" is a portrait of two teenage boys from Toronto's Regent Park neighbourhood that sensitively depicts the disconnect of urban poverty and race from the mainstream. The 2009 Hot Docs award winner is showcased as part of TVO's Black History Month programming, which also includes stories concerning the plight of Ethiopian women seeking medical care, an exploration of Timbuktu's rich literary history, and compelling dramas providing varied perspectives on the Black experience.

Also on February 10, director Kate Blewett's "Bulgaria's Abandoned Children Revisited" updates us on a story she first exposed two years earlier, returning to a state-run institution to see how the lives of neglected children have changed for the better after her original documentary resulted in an international outcry for change.

The eight-part drama "Party Animals" beginning on February 18 reveals the machinations of a group of researchers, lobbyists, advisors and politicians who turn spin into policy. And beginning February 3, look for the second series of the gritty crime drama "The Fixer" starring Andrew Buchan as a hitman working for an unofficial police squad.

And TVO's "The Agenda with Steve Paikin" continues its On the Road tour looking at how Ontario is being reinvented in the new economy with a visit to Brockville on February 28 and March 1.
