Broadcaster

Nice catch, Global

10/23/2003

TORONTO - Global Television's programming department deserves some kudos this morning.

Those watching The Brotherhood of Poland, NH last night, an episode where a child goes missing, saw an advisory at the start of the show and at the end of each commercial break warning that, in light of recent current events, viewer discretion is advised due to the nature of this previously scheduled broadcast.

With all of the Greater Toronto Area worried and waiting for news on the disappearance of nine-year-old Cecilia Zhang, who was taken from her home in the middle of the night Monday, the advisory was a smart thing for Global to do.

While the show's storyline certainly didn't match the current real-life horror going on, we do hope that the show's happy ending, where the child is returned safe to her parents, is duplicated in Toronto.
