Building the Impossible Railway 3: The Railway General
A new era in both the building of Canada's first inter-continental railroad, the Canadian Pacific, and the development of the growing nation, comes in 1882 with the entry on to the scene of William
Cornelius Van Home.
Described as ' the ablest railway general in the world,' he transforms the project from near collapse. Some of his decisions, most of them in fact, literally affect the face of Canada today. Canada's map with its vast empty spaces, was starting to be filled in, with the railroad as its vital iron link. Although American born, it is not for nothing that he has also been called ' The most Canadian of Canadians.' Indians also make a first appearance in this dramatised documentary of important developments in Canada's history.

To stop you giving me a pain in the neck I protect my neck by tightening my neck muscles, which gives me the 'pain in the neck you are.
A typical example of what psychiatrist R. D. Laing calls a ' knot.' His book was used as the basis for a stage play performed by the Actors Company.
DR LAING - his other books include The Divided Self and The Politics of the Family - wrote Knots in 1970. Since it is a very simple text, many people were puzzled as to what they should make of this one.
Laing says: 'I have always tried to write literature, regardless of what people thought I was doing, several people have said that they found it a relief to see something they recognised in their lives. It turns some of the agony into' humour.'
The original stage adaptation was written by EDWARD PETHERBRIDGE. The film we are showing tonight was made by the ACTORS COMPANY and directed by DAVID I. MUNRO. Cast:
PAOLA DIONISOTTI , SHARON DRUCE ROBERT EDDISON , ROBIN ELLIS
