    CBC Documentary "Ice, Sweat & Tears"

    The CBC has announced a new documentary "Ice, Sweat and Tears" to be shown on the CBC program Doc Zone on Thursday (Dec. 13th) at 9:00 pm. It's about all the ups and downs of the skaters while they train for competition. It looks good.

    I believe the figure skating episode is going to be on March...7th (?) from what I remember hearing, right before Worlds. Should be a one off episode.

    Thanks Ladskater for the heads up. I am interested but I think it's probably geo-blocked outside Canada. Any chance of this documentary being made available to outside of Canada after it's initial airing? In fact, I was looking through the various series, and find some of the issues to be aired interesting and would like to view them too. Is there a link to all the past series (those I found on this website is not available when I tried to click on them)?

    While i enjoyed the documentary, i think i expected a little more. It was mainly focused on last season, and i would have liked it to show a little more personally what each skater goes through in everyday life and competitons. Marina i wish was shown even more. She is a delightful and entertaining coach.

    A video interview with the "Ice, Sweat and Tears" filmmakers, Judy Holm and Michael McNamara, includes some pleasant (brief) comments about figure skating fans. (That part begins at approx. 4:27. The entire video is 8:47 in length.)

    Ice, Sweat and Tears

    Did anyone catch this program on the CBC the other night? It was a fabulous look at what it takes to be a champion figure skater. In case you missed the program check it out here:

    Ladskater, over the last several days, some of us have been posting in the thread that you had started in December for "Ice, Sweat and Tears":
