The Arctic is under siege as never before. The Russians send submarines deep below the North Pole. The Americans dispatch surveillance planes to monitor new threats in the north. And Canada is now forced to scramble to defend territories it has ignored for too long. Global warming is turning the Far North into a resource hotspot. The fabled Northwest Passage could become a new super highway for cargo and cruise ships. And beneath the rapidly melting ice lies much of the world's undiscovered oil and gas reserves. Canadian scientists are now joining the soldiers on the front lines of this new frontier, as they race to chart Canada's Arctic claims under the looming deadline of an international treaty. The Battle for the Arctic takes us from the far reaches of the North Pole to the waters of Alaska for a look into a struggle for sovereignty that could change the very face of Canada.

"For Canada the stakes are unprecedented. More than a billion dollars in aid has been promised to Afghanistan since the fall of the Taliban regime. And with close to 100 Canadian soldiers killed, the military mission in the war-torn country has exacted a considerable human toll. Six years into the mammoth task of rebuilding Afghanistan, it's time to address a contentious question: is all of this effort making a difference to the lives of Afghans? This documentary takes viewers into the heart of a country that has been the subject of such intense debate and asks whether or not the lives of ordinary citizens are improving. In order to gain unique access to Afghans living in remote and particularly dangerous areas the CBC engaged local journalists and camera crews. Through a series of intensely personal stories delving into a range of topics, the program examines the big issues: Is the country descending into further instability? Or is real progress being made?"--container.
