For all readers who are looking forward to watch Filling the Blank, Felipe Barral’s CNN documentary on Alzheimer’s disease starting Saturday, January 29, here is new information Alzforum learned today. The film is a production of the Special Projects Unit at CNN International and CNN en Espanol. Even though most people might think of CNN as one entity, in practice it’s not. In this case, this has meant that while CNN International and CNN en Espanol are broadcasting the documentary film at the show times we posted last week (see ARF related news story), it looks as if CNN/US will not air the film along with its sister channels in this first worldwide release. We will keep you posted if we hear otherwise.
Depending on where you live, this may not affect you. But for those who can only access CNN/U.S., here’s a consolation. The full documentary will be available for streaming at CNN.com starting early next week. Meanwhile, the company has loaded a story and some video clips to its world’s untold stories website.—Gabrielle Strobel.
