    Re the digital doc story, I know there’s been a lot of buzz around the NFB’s iPhone app. I don’t have one (I don’t even have a cell phone) but the thing is free and CNET’s been gushing over it.

    The whole thing is a Canal D publi-reportage. And Canal D can’t compare to european ARTE-TV, BBC…my nickname for it is Canal Déchet.

      Certainly they have a fraction of the budget of those other nets. My guess is that if Canal D is compared to others of similar size, they’d come off looking pretty good.
