"Positively Autistic" on CBC This Monday

Filed Under (Uncategorized) by Estee on 22-10-2008

Adam and I were interviewed after my surgeries earlier this year for this program. You can catch it on CBC The National this Monday evening:

s things stand now, “Postively Autistic” will air on the “The National” this coming Monday October 27 after the newscast portion of the program. “The National” broadcasts twice, first on Newsworld (cable channel 26) beginning at 9:00 pm; and then across the CBC network main channel (the precise channel number varies across the country according to whether people receive on cable or satellite and whether or not they watch on HD) beginning at 10:00 pm. (The newscast portion of “The National” usually lasts approximately 25 minutes; the documentary will run immediately following the newscast).
People who live in the United States are sometimes able to receive CBC television in their area depending on their cable/satellite provider.

If you are unable to catch the broadcast when it airs on television, you can watch it afterwards on our website http://www.cbc.ca/national/. Our website will also offer a significant amount of supplementary information, including full transcripts of the interviews I conducted (including interviews with people who did not make it into the documentary itself), links to people’s websites, etc.
