Fifth Estate Jian Ghomeshi

The Fifth Estate tracks the rise and fall of Jian Ghomeshi

The Fifth Estate, CBC television's investigative news program, has turned its lens on the broadcaster's fallen star Jian Ghomeshi. With loads of archival footage and interviews with media experts, CBC staff, and the host's alleged victims, the episode is the most in depth examination of Ghomeshi that's been assembled in the wake of his termination from the CBC.

Despite the opprobrium that surrounds the allegations directed toward former Q host, the investigative report is well balanced and insightful, particularly as pertains to the internal meetings at the CBC leading up to Ghomeshi's dismissal and what role Q staff members might have had in presenting evidence against the host. It's particularly intriguing to watch how CBC Radio head Chris Boyce handles a series of pointed questions from reporter Gillian Findlay.
