Program: Life and Death in Kandahar
Surfing the news the other day, I caught the tail end of The Fifth Estate.
COMING UP this Wednesday March 12, 2008 at 9 PM EST on CBC will be a program piece entitled:
LIFE and Death in Kandahar
Description: To the sound of incoming choppers carrying wounded for treatment, the fifth estate takes you where most Canadians will never go: to the critical drama at the heart of Canada's war in Afghanistan. For four weeks, fifth estate cameras had exclusive access to Canada's military trauma center at Kandahar Air base--think MASH unit, 21st century style-- and to the medical professionals who work there, fighting their own battles at the turning point between life and death. Wherever you stand on Canada's Afghan mission, you will want to meet these remarkable professionals, captured with unprecedented intimacy and candour, as they work under constant pressure at the cutting edge of modern warfare.
