Welcome Back Peter Bossman – Peter Bossman was elected as the first black mayor in all of Eastern Europe. But before he achieved that, he first fell in love, raised a family and made a career for himself, fought racism and xenophobia, and helped many people. Peter was also compared to USA’s president Obama, but his story as black man in a mainly white populated country is completely different.

Music – A Family Tradition is a dynamic and entertaining 45 minute documentary film that looks at four extraordinary musical families – Charlie Biddle and his family and the Sherwood Family in Montreal, the Richardson Family in Toronto, and the King Family in Vancouver. The film shows how these black families embraced music as a life-long tradition that has been handed down from mother to daughter and from father to son. “Music – A Family Tradition” received a 1997 Gemini Award (Canada’s most prestigious television award) and was nominated for an International Emmy Award.
