CBC's The Hour features Robert J. Sawyer and Karl Schroeder

CBC Television's The Hour with George Stroumboulopoulous, which airs at 11:00 p.m. local time coast-to-coast in Canada, is doing a three-part series on the future to kick off the new year.

The three segments will air Tuesday, January 2; Wednesday, January 3; and Thursday, January 4. Each segment features a different theme, and a different person making the predictions. One segment is on the future of transportation, and SF writer Robert J. Sawyer is interviewed; another is on the future of warfare and SF writer Karl Schroeder is interviewed; the third is on the future of humanity, and George Dvorsky of the Toronto Transhumanist Association is interviewed. But which segment will air on which night hasn't yet been determined.

The Hour is a national current-affairs show produced by CBC Television in Toronto. The segments in question are produced by Nick McCabe.

For the benefit of those of us who don't live in the fine country of Canada, do you have any idea whether or not CBC ever make material like this available online after the broadcast date? I'd be very interested in seeing all three shows.

I honestly don't know. CBC TV hasn't been as good as the American networks about making lots of TV available online. They're better in the radio department with, for instance, this wonderful weekly podcast of their science program Quirks and Quarks.

Rob's segment aired last night. His comments about zero-gee sex drew some good laughs.
