As It Happens, hosted by Alan Maitland and Susan Reisler, has the following segments: interview with Janet Jessup (whose daughter Christine Jessup was murdered two years earlier) about the feelings likely being experienced by the parents of murdered 11-year old Alison Parrott; interview with Dr. John Bradford (of the Royal Ottawa Hospital) on efforts to street proof children and how to deal with the criminals who target children; interview with Steven Bindman (of the Ottawa Citizen) on Sinclair Steven Inquiry testimony provided by Shirley Walker (special assistant to Sinclair Stevens while he was industry minister and worked for Stevens' York Centre Corp. for twenty years), in particularly on the testimony about entries in her diaries that appeared to indicate she was informing Mr. Stevens of business dealings that were supposed to be held in a blind trust while he was in elected office. Next is an interview with Wayne Smith, a railway conductor that was fired by CN after his freight train ran into a passenger train near Hinton, Alberta; discussion with Selig Harrison (Carnegie Endowment for International Peace) to discuss the implications for relations between the United States and the USSR (Russia) as a result of the proposed pull out of some Soviet troops from Afghanistan; interview with John Hughes, the first Canadian to participate in the BOC (British Oxygen Company) around-the-world solo yacht race; interview with Allan Billard (executive director of the Eastern Fishermen's Federation) who organized a publicity event to illustrate the effects that fisherman see grey seals have on fish stocks and to reinforce the need to reintroduce a cull of the seals; interview with Paul Ajas on how recent floods in Alberta revealed (primarily) flour gold in gravel beds as the floodwaters recede; and interview with E.K. Turner (President, Saskatchewan Wheat Pool) on the effects new American subsidies on wheat will have on Canadian grain sales to China and the USSR.
