TVO's Fall 2008 Primetime Highlights



    
    New season begins Sunday, September 14, 2008, with Growing Minds, a week
    that asks: How far parents and society go for our children's education?
    

    TORONTO, Aug. 12 /CNW/ - Are gifted children slipping through the net of
the education system? Is the sight of a 59-year-old muscle-bound man in a
skimpy Speedo an inspiration or an embarrassment? Where does the line between
protection from offensive material and censorship lie? TVO's programming is
anchored around the issues and subjects that affect our community, society and
world today and are intended to provoke thought and stimulate discussion.
Please visit TVO's Fall 2008 Primetime Highlights at
www.newswire.ca/en/releases/mmnr/tvo/fall2008 to explore our great line up of
programs in the following categories:

    
    -   Growing Minds (September 14 to 20, 2008) - TVO's fall 2008 season
        kicks off with an entire week of primetime documentaries and dramas,
        along with The Agenda with Steve Paikin, exploring the most important
        time in anyone's development - the school years. How far will parents
        and society to go for our children's education? What really happens
        in a kindergarten classroom? Could picking the wrong secondary school
        prevent your kids from getting into a good university? Does the
        Chinese education system have something to teach us? These are a few
        of the discussion points raised by this unprecedented week of
        programming.

    -   Current Affairs - The Agenda with Steve Paikin returns September 2,
        2008, with a third season of outstanding analysis of issues and
        events affecting us all. This year, The Agenda with Steve Paikin will
        go on the road visiting and broadcasting from five different regions
        in Ontario examining our province's changing economies. And the
        world's foremost thinkers on social, cultural, political and economic
        issues join Allan Gregg to discuss their latest books on Allan Gregg
        in Conversation, back for its 14th season.

    -   Documentaries - TVO is home to the best non-fiction programming from
