DRUGS, DREAMS AND DEMONS

Broadcast on SCN, March 20 and on The Lens, Newsworld, March 21

I watched drugs, dreams and demons tonight and thought it was excellent.  I have a history of helping people with drug addictions etc.  I was a detox nurse for a brief period of time.  The documentaries on CBC are so much edgier now...it's so much more exciting than I remember from when I was a much younger woman.  Good job!

The documentary titled "Under your skin" was fantastic! As a social worker I understand that many people who become drug addicts are because of something that happened to them in their past (ie. sexual abuse). This was made clear in the documentary and I felt the director really "humanized" all the characters, instead of just labelling all the people "drug addicts".

I also really enjoyed the music, the artistic colours and editing. A master piece! I look forward in seeing more documentaries like this one on CBC!

I was wondering if I would be able to purchase a copy of The Lens-Under the skin, drugs, dreams & demons.  I work with youth at risk and found the show to be something I would like to incorporate into the youth's learning.
