Several weeks ago the CBC here in Prince Edward Island ran an excellent series of radio and television pieces called Is there a doctor in the house?. This is the kind of “integration” of radio and television that’s always talked about when “synergy” rears its head around the CBC table. Sometimes — like with the old “big picture” projects of olde — this seemed like an annoyance for reporters more than an opportunity; in this case it worked, and it worked extremely well. Perhaps because it was a local effort not saddled by a national agenda?
There are audio and video excerpts on the CBC website; several of them feature our own family physician, Dr. Pauline Champion.
