Daily Planet

"Canadian Air & Space Museum"

I went up to the museum for a little bit before coming home.  The cast and crew of Discovery Channel’s Daily Planet was there filming tonight’s show in honour of the Centennial and Flight.

Here we see Jay Ingram and Ziya Tong shooting a short piece.

I’ve been a fan of Jay’s work since I first heard him on CBC Radio’s Quirks and Quarks way back in the 80’s.  Unlike most radio and TV hosts, he really knows what he’s talking about.  He’s not the most polished of personalities but he comes across, both on screen and in person, as someone who is truly interested in what he’s doing and what his guests are saying.

The filming was for tonight’s show which airs on Discovery Channel at 7 and 11 pm.  I’ll be taping it – I might even be visible in one of the shots.

I’ll provide a link to the episode tomorrow.

Update:  The episode is available here
