Spend Valentine’s with ichannel

February 8th, 2012


ichannel, Canada’s political and social issues network, is feeling the love this Valentine’s, with documentary and movie specials that take a thought-provoking look at the nature of relationships and romance.

Sunday Feb. 12, 8 pm ET/PT
Handsome Life magazine photographer Bill Shelby (David Niven) arrives in picturesque Carmel, California to snap his latest subject, Dorinda Hatch (Joan Caulfield), author of The Lady Says No, a best-seller that warns women away from men. Deriding her proto-feminist tome as “spinster rubbish,” Shelby sets out to undermine Dorinda’s theories and awaken her romantic impulses. Frank Ross directed this lightweight but charming 1951 battle-of-the-sexes romp, which offers a revealing glimpse into the era’s sexual attitudes and mores.

Monday Feb. 13, 9 pm ET/PT
Can a failing relationship be saved? That’s the question 15 real-life couples will face, as they gather in the Arizona desert for an intensive series of workshops aimed at rekindling their love lives. This hour-long documentary by Trish Bush follows the couples as they open up – sometimes with shocking honesty – and confront the obstacles that can stand in the way of building happy, committed and fulfilling marriages.

Tuesday Feb. 14, 8 pm ET/PT
Gary Chapman
is a relationship counselor and New York Times bestselling author.

Tuesday Feb. 14, 9 pm ET/PT
Filmmaker Tracie Donahue was an all-American girl who grew up fantasizing about an all-American marriage to the man of her dreams. And like many all-American marriages, hers ended in divorce. In this irreverent and witty documentary, Donahue embarks on a quest to understand why some couples manage to live happily ever after – and why so many others don’t.
