CBC | Radio-Canada (Eng) Inside Information: Stories from the Street (Part 2 of 3)

On its opening night, September 8, 1952, the first news story broadcast on CBC Television was the dramatic escape and subsequent capture of Toronto's notorious bank robbers, The Boyd Gang. This documentary features archival footage from the groundbreaking Connections series, and looks at the investigative nature of The Fifth Estate's coverage of the wrongly convicted, the changing approach to the coverage of sexual abuse stories, and more. As well, it explores the viewer's love affair with villains-versus-victims stories, the power of the camera, and what sometimes leads reporters astray.
