An Open Letter to The Fifth Estate:

I grew up watching The Fifth Estate, and I think that your program is by far the best documentary series out there. Your crew is thoughtful, diligent, and the amount of work put into each and every episode is appreciated.

Now, on to my question... Why is perhaps the most well-known and revealing documentary you have ever produced -- The Karla Homolka Episode -- not currently available for viewing online or otherwise? I couldn't help but notice that the video timeline seems to stop just short of the Homolka broadcast.  


There are conspiracy theoriests out there who would suggest that it is not on the menu for political reasons. Adding to that theory, the following response was recently received from a representative of The Fifth Estate:

"Unfortunately, the Karla Homolka episode is not available and probably won't be, at least for some time. However, your message is being passed along to our senior producers, so they will see that the interest is still there."

Lack of interest hardly seems the case; all episodes from the 2005/06 season are currently available directly from the program's web site except the Homolka Episode, which was one of the most-watched and certainly the most well-known and widely discussed episode in The Fifth Estate's long broadcasting history.

Don't plead the fifth; Canadians should have access to this important piece of broadcast journalism.

Thanks for the great shows!
