Desperate Housewives is back, and picked up right where it left off last season with all of the drama, a bit of closure, and a few more surprises to keep viewers watching all season. In tonight’s episode, surprise, surprise, Mike and Susan tied the knot for the second time; leaving a scorned Katherine to pick up the pieces and get a little bit of revenge on her former friend. We were also introduced to a new family on the block, who without a doubt has some serious secrets, including a potentially murderous son who, according to the previews, is about to get a little bit too personal with Julie Myer. In this episode, we also got a better glimpse at Lynette’s struggle with another pregnancy just as she gets ready to send her oldest kids off to college – and we can surely expect a little bit of family drama as a result of this plotline this season. Brie and Gabby’s plotlines both picked up right where they left off last season, and were fairly predictable with no shocking new revelations coming to a head.

So what did you think of the season premiere of Desperate Housewives. Too much closure, not enough new drama; or just the right combination of the two?

In the year that Charles Darwin is being celebrated, have scientists finally unravelled our family tree and discovered the ‘missing link?’  Shot in HD, The Link, a CSI-style documentary investigation, reveals an astonishing new discovery that changes everything we thought we knew about mankind’s origins. It airs on CBC NEWS: THE PASSIONATE EYE on Sunday, Sept. 27 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CBC Newsworld.

Narrated by renowned British natural history filmmaker David Attenborough, The Link introduces viewers to Ida, a three-foot long fossil including tail, 94 per cent intact, and the most complete fossil ever found with links to the origins of man. Originally found in the Messel Pit near Frankfurt, Germany, the team of scientists studying Ida have likened finding her to an asteroid hitting the Earth, discovering the Lost Ark, or even uncovering the Rosetta Stone.

So much of what we understand about evolution comes from partial fossils and even single bones, but Ida’s fossilization offers much more than that, from the outline of her fur to her very last meal contained in her stomach. The Link gives viewers exclusive access to the first scientists to study her, and tells the history of Ida and her place in the world. This cutting-edge scientific detective story follows her discovery, opens a stunningly evocative window into our past and changes what we know about primate evolution and, ultimately, our own.

The Link is an Atlantic Productions film in association with BBC, ZDF and NRK. The executive producer is Anthony Geffen.
