In this program: why there’s been so much attention paid to TV’s digital switchover and what it says about our culture’s attachment to the tube. Also, we check in with the heating fuel market, and learn how to make ice wine.
Some fuel dealers are turning away customers unless they first agree to a
credit check. And

customers agree to pay in cash. An
anti-poverty agency that serves the Connecticut River Valley says the practice is wrong, and hurts customers
already suffering from today’s financial crisis.
