Lorraine Mallinder is in one of Quebec's 'sugar shacks' - where the maple syrup is made - finding out exactly how to get the sweet stuff out of the trees and into the market. This is now a high-tech, big-money industry, turning over billions of dollars. Consignments of syrup have even been hijacked and driven away. But some farmers and processors still stick to the old-fashioned ways.

In Toronto, Daniel Nasaw makes a slightly awkward witness to an unauthorised 'feminist porn' shoot in a hotel room - and learns more than he could ever have imagined about gender, desire and satisfaction.
