CBC to Premiere 'Anthrax War' Sunday night

For those BTS/ATS members who are lucky enough to receive CBC Newsworld, don't miss tonight's groundbreaking documentary - Anthrax War, which lifts the lid on the 2001 Anthrax 'attacks' and investigates the
massive increase in proliferation of BW research which has occurred since 2001.



Sunday March 29, 2009 at 10 pm ET/PT on CBC Newsworld

An investigation into the deadly world of germ weapons, Anthrax War begins in New York in the days following 9/11. Anthrax-laced letters, mailed to media and U.S. senators, killed five people and spread fear and panic throughout the nation.

For filmmaker Bob Coen, who was raised in Zimbabwe where the former white regime has been accused of unleashing anthrax against the black population, biological weapons have a deep personal meaning. He embarks on a journey that raises troubling questions about the FBI's investigation of the 21st century's first act of biological terrorism.

Coen's investigation takes him from the U.S. to the U.K. and from the edge of Siberia to the tip of Africa. In a rare interview, Coen confronts "Doctor Death" Wouter Basson, who headed Project Coast, the South African apartheid-era bio-warfare program. Project Coast used germ warfare against select targets within the country's black population.

Anthrax War also investigates the mysterious deaths of some of the world's leading anthrax scientists, including Dr. David Kelly, the UK's top military microbiologist, the Soviet defector Dr. Vladimir Pasechnik, and Dr. Bruce Ivins. The FBI claims - despite the doubts of highly ranked U.S.
officials - that Ivins was the only person behind the U.S. anthrax murders.


I'd be really grateful if anyone who watches this show could let me know whether it mentions the United Kingdom's extensive series of Cold War BW experiments.

The person the FBI accused of the anthrax attacks is dead, so we may never get to the truth. The case is closed as far as the FBI is concerned, so no questions will be answered from them. I hope an independent venue airs the special here in the United States. Thank you for sharing the program.
