Premiering Sunday, Sept. 28 beginning at 8 p.m. ET/9 p.m. PT, the first hour tells the definitive story of the planet’s most iconic plane – the plane that has shaped the world of travel more than any other – the 747 or Jumbo Jet.

Descriptions of 747: THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE and MIGHTY PLANES: HEROIC HERCULES as follows:

747: THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE

Sunday, Sept. 28 at 8 p.m. ET/9 p.m. PT

It’s the most famous passenger airplane ever to take to the skies: the Boeing 747 or Jumbo Jet. With exclusive behind-the-scenes access, never-before-seen archival footage, super life-like CGI and gripping dramatic reconstructions – this one-hour special reveals just what makes the 747 one of the most ground-breaking and awesome aircraft in the sky, a jet that has carried the equivalent of 80% of the world’s population. Travelling to Boeing’s Seattle HQ, the biggest building in the world – 747: THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE reveals the mind-blowing technical effort that goes into putting together a 747 – millions of parts, six storeys high, and wings the size of a parking lot. Then, meet Colonel Mark Tillman, the pilot who flew Air Force One for President George W. Bush on the morning of 9/11.

MIGHTY PLANES: HEROIC HERCULES

Sunday, Sept. 28 at 9 p.m. ET/10 p.m. PT

The Hercules is the most flexible airlifter in the world. With more than 70 variants, the C130J or “Super” Herc is the newest model in the longest continuous production run of any plane in aircraft history. This medium-range bird is the tactical cargo and personnel transporter for the U.S. Air Force, and serves multi-mission capabilities. Its many jobs include: special operations; search and rescue; aerial refueling; medevac; natural disaster relief missions; fire fighter; maritime surveillance; and hurricane hunter. In this two-hour special, MIGHTY PLANES takes flight with the delivery of a brand-new C130J fresh off the Lockheed Martin production to the Little Rock Air Force base in Arkansas. Then, meet Tim Nguyen, a Lockheed Martin Aviation Engineer who has dedicated his life to protecting the mighty Hercules from attack. He journeys to Little Rock to visit the very Herc that saved his life 40 years ago during the fall of Saigon.

Canadian TV Ratings [Sports]: August 22-24, 2014

This week’s top match was the Roughriders againstthe BC Lions of course.

As with last weekend, this weekend’s top match was a CFL game (Lions vs. the Roughriders); however the top match this week drew over 20,000 more viewers, which took this week’s top game just past the million viewer mark.

While the CFL saw a decent rise, the Jays are still sliding. Friday, Saturday and Sunday’s matches all fell when compared to games on their respective nights last week.

The bad news for the Jays and Sportsnet might continue if TSN’s extra feeds are as successful as they hope. This weekend will be the first for TSN1, TSN3, TSN4 and TSN5, so we’ll get those ratings next week and see how they do.

However, I’m not sure how Numeris will tackle the new feeds though, particularly when it comes to the US Open coverage. Perhaps they’ll break them down by channel as they’re airing different matches or they might consider it one unified broadcast.

Anyway, while that plays out check out the ratings I have below and for even more check out the source link below. Continue reading

The Brand New ONE presents HEALING YOGA an original new Canadian series starting Monday, September 1, 2014. In each episode of HEALING YOGA, certified yoga instructor Deborah Devine leads an easy-to-follow gentle yoga class designed to give real people, with real chronic conditions, real relief.

HEALING YOGA was inspired by Deborah‘s own personal history. For years, Deborah thrived in Toronto’s high-pressure business world but the workaholic life finally caught up with her. At only 35-years-old, Deborah was very overweight and in chronic pain with severe mobility issues. Then, Deborah discovered Restorative Yoga, a gentler form of yoga, and transformed her life.

“My health was a complete wreck. Then, I went to a gentle yoga class. Stress melted away. Pain disappeared. I went from a size 18 to a size 8. I stopped getting sick. I learned to open my heart and I felt happy for the first time in years,” said Deborah.

Deborah’s stretches and positions are designed to relieve and reverse chronic conditions.
