The Perfect Runner, Official Trailer

I live in Cyprus, a small European country next to Israel, Greece and Egypt. Right now i am so envy of Canadians, who can watch this TV show. If someone finds out how is it possible for me to watch it online, please please please let me know on the comments area. Here is a description of the show and a small trailer:

How did our ancestors survive the shift from trees to land, and evolve to dominate the planet? The answer lies in a remarkable ability we evolved far earlier than our powerful brains: humans are nature’s perfect endurance runners. Gemini-winning anthropologist Niobe Thompson (Inuit Odyssey, 2009; Code Breakers, 2011) takes a journey of personal discovery back in evolutionary time, in conversation with leading evolutionary biologists and immersed in cultures whose survival still depends on endurance running. From the highlands of Ethiopia, to the most remote place in Arctic Siberia, to the world’s toughest ultramarathon in the Canadian Rockies, The Perfect Runner weaves cutting-edge science with gripping adventure, and leaves the viewer with a new and inspiring understanding of our common evolutionary inheritance as the running ape.

Canada 2012, 45 mins. HD, Dir: Niobe Thompson, Clearwater Documentary Inc.

The Perfect Runner will have its first broadcast in Canada on March 15th 2012, at 8pm on CBC TV’s The Nature of Things, Canada’s blue-chip nature and science strand and the longest running program on Canadian television. Broadcast to follow on ARTE in German and French in September 2012.

    Should be available here: http://www.cbc.ca/natureofthings/episode/the-perfect-runner.html after the broadcast time (it’s not yet available). They’re broadcasting an encore presentation, maybe after that – they’ve already got a place for it on the website.
