Canada's national news broadcaster said Friday that it has asked for cuts before it will air a heavily-promoted Falun Gong documentary that it pulled from its schedule at the request of Chinese officials. The government-owned news network CBC had planned to air the documentary, "Beyond the Red Wall: The Persecution of Falun Gong," on Tuesday, but postponed its showing after receiving calls from the Chinese Embassy and the consulate in Toronto, said network spokesman Jeff Keay. The film will be aired on November 20 after the filmmaker, Peter Rowe, makes cuts recommended by the network, said Keay. Keay would not elaborate on the cuts. Rowe did not immediately return calls.
