      There is a series of two programmes airing on the evening show "Ideas"
      on CBC Radio One on Tuesday, June 10 � Wednesday, June 11 on
      Christopher Alexander, whose theories are in many ways congruent with
      the motivations of the carfree movement. Unfortunately, I only found
      out about the first of the two when the show came on yesterday evening;
      however, the show can be listened to on the web at 9 pm in each time
      zone in Canada. If you go to the address below, you can listen to the
      second instalment of the series this evening (Canadian time). Shows are
      netcast in Real Audio format.

      With five and "a half" time zones in Canada, you have some leeway in
      catching the programme as it is rebroadcast from east to west across
      the country. Here is a link to a map of Canadian Daylight Savings
      (Summer) time zones; compare it with the clickable map of stations on
      the previous link to figure out which CBC station is your best bet for
      catching the show:

      (Note that in Newfoundland the show is broadcast at 9.30 pm, i.e. at
      9.00 Atlantic Time.)

      Here is the short description of the series that appears on the Ideas
      web page ( http://www.cbc.ca/ideas ):

      RENEGADE ARCHITECT
      Christopher Alexander is one of the most innovative architects alive.
      He's also a severe critic of contemporary architecture. He tries to
      express fundamental truths in books with such titles as A Timeless Way
      of Building , and The Nature of Order. Jill Eisen explores his ideas
      about what gives life beauty, and how it can be expressed in our
      buildings and our towns.

      For everyone who couldn't catch the first of the two instalments, and
      for those who would like more permanent access, audio cassettes and
      transcripts of the two shows are available. Questions about transcripts
      or tapes should be addressed to IDEAS Transcripts administrator Ian
      Godfrey at ideastran@... . More details,including prices
      (Canadian dollars) can be found at
      http://www.cbc.ca/ideas/transcripts/index.html .

      Regards,

      Chris Miller
