the fifth estate: Conspiracy Theories

In a special investigation the fifth estate's Bob McKeown finds that even the most outlandish conspiracy theory may have its basis in a legitimate question. In the course of separating fact from fiction, Bob delves into the labyrinthine and surprising ties between the Bushes and the Bin Ladens.

What he finds out may startle you as much as any conspiracy theory.

The response from viewers of the fifth estate to Conspiracy Theories was almost unprecedented in the history of the show. The broadcast had barely ended before emails began flowing into our office.

In addition to the extraordinary volume of mail, the number of hits to the fifth estate's web site was overwhelming. Overnight, the fifth estate's site became one of the most read of all the CBC's web sites, a sure indication that we had touched a nerve among our viewers.
