CTV: Shania Homecoming Special Nov. 29
 
During the weekend I saw a brief clip on CTV promoting the special...they showed Shania entering the Centre, then a view of the fans out, with a clear close up of the front row there, you can clearly see Nancy and Tee from here waving to the camera..:BL
Then you see Shania pointing at that photo of her when she was still in elementary school..the one we could not figure out which one Shania was among the kids shown...she says something like: WOW! that was me!!..LOL!:HG
So far it looks like a GREAT Shania special..Let's hope CMT US picks it UP!!!:JP

Shania's Homecoming
 
Mon. Nov. 29 at 8pm ET An exclusive prime-time special featuring international recording superstar Shania Twain.

Entitled Shania's Homecoming, the one-hour special will air Monday, Nov. 29 at 8 p.m. ET, exclusively on CTV (check local listings).

-- Host Ben Mulroney to tape new special with singing superstar in Timmins tomorrow --

CTV announced last month (September 2004) an exclusive broadcast engagement with Twain timed for her return to Canada and her hometown of Timmins, Ontario tomorrow. At that time, CTV also announced that Twain will co-host CTV's Canada AM on Wednesday -- live, on-location at Toronto's Yonge-Dundas Square (Nov. 3). The two programs mark Shania Twain's only television appearances during her upcoming return visit to Canada.

Hosted by etalk Daily's Ben Mulroney, Shania's Homecoming is an exclusive chronicle of Twain's hometown tour of Timmins tomorrow. CTV camera crews have been granted exclusive access, providing viewers with candid, behind-the-scenes footage from her trip home, including her emotional first visit to the "Shania Twain Centre." Viewers will have an intimate view of Twain's first-time reaction to the museum dedicated to her blockbuster career.

With Mulroney along for every step of the way, CTV cameras will also capture Twain as she greets fans, friends and family and visits other local landmarks during the memorable day. In between stops, Mulroney will follow-up on his recent interview with Twain from Montreux, Switzerland, discussing her 10-year career on the eve of the Nov. 9 release of her new album, Shania Twain's Greatest Hits. The prime-time special will also feature highlights from Twain's stint the following day as co-host of Canada AM.

Shania Twain's Greatest Hits, a new album chronicling 18 of Twain's biggest, chart-topping hits as well as three new songs, will be released on Nov. 9, 2004 by Universal Music Canada. It's the first greatest hits package ever from the diamond-selling artist.

Shania Twain's Come On Over was the most successful female solo artist album of all time with worldwide sales of an astonishing 35 million. Her last album, Up!, debuted at Number One on the album charts and was the highest-selling album of 2002, according to Nielsen Soundscan.

Universal Music Canada, a unit of Universal Music Group, is Canada's leading music organization, maintaining an overall 32.5 per cent market share. For further information on Universal Music Canada, please visit www.umusic.ca.

The banner picture is really great. I think that is when the kids were out front of the school when she showed up.

Nov. 27 issue of Canadian TV Guide
 
Shania's home! Ben Mulroney gets up close and personal with Canada's country superstar.

"I am a master of the five minute interview.

When promoting upcoming movies, actors sit in hotel suites and cycle through people like me, a different one every five minutes. Now, there are two types of journalists that attend these junkets. There are those who feel that while you have a celebrity in a chair, you can ask them anything and everything you want. And then there are people like me: I was given access to Celebrity X for very specific reasons and my mandate in the hotel suite was limited.

Cut to Timmins, Ont., where three weeks ago I accompanied Shania Twain as she visited her home town for the first time in years.

This was no five-minute interview. For two days, from daybreak until dinner, Shania took me to every old haunt of hers, and along the way, we talked. We visited two of her childhood homes; one was filled with happy memories, the other with struggles. She remembered going to school hungry every day, envious of those who could afford to throw out a half-eaten apple.

At her high school, we surprised a classroom full of students, still groggy from too early a wake-up. I was told, hours later, that some of them still couldn't believe their luck.

We travelled in style, taking an SUV from stop to stop and CTV cameras capturing much of the trip. But it was in those transitional moments, after the rush of a memory had subsided and we were back in the SUV, that our talks became even more personal.

The cameras weren't rolling when we discussed how different our lives were: She was the product of a much harsher reality than my own, and yet we were similar because of the affection and admiration we both have for our families. Suddenly, it was as if a light went on. When she saw me, she saw a person who had been raised by very successful, private parents with meagre beginnings. In other words, when she saw me, she saw a little bit of her son.

"I want him to be as comfortable on an Indian reservation...as he will be in a grand ballroom." Having never reared a child, I am reluctant to give anyone advice. Instead, I spoke to Shania as the product of rearing, telling her that all she can do is raise Eja to be respectful of the community on the reserve and feel lucky to be in the grand ballroom. In the end, though, unless he is well received in both worlds, that comfort will elude him.

Smiling, she said that her wish for Eja is that he be independent and self-sufficient. She joked about dropping him off in the woods for a while so he could learn to fend for himself.

Smirking and shaking my head, I took issue, stating that as long as he knew that she was waiting for him at the edge of the woods, Eja's struggles would be like mine: personal, selfish and nothing compared to the hurdles Shania faced early in her life.


What makes this exchange so special is that Shania is well-known for guarding her privacy. She married "Mutt" Lange, one of the most successful and reclusive music producers in the world, and then she exiled herself to Switzerland.

She keeps her cards close to her chest and is smart enough to tip her hand only when she wants to. Either she was in a very giving and reflective mood having come back to her roots, or she felt really comfortable around me, but I learned a great deal about this woman that I had never read or heard before.

The Shania Twain Centre was the pinnacle of the trip. Having accumulated more gold, diamond and platinum records, as well as press clippings, awards, ball gowns and costumes than any one person can deal with, Shania packed it all up in her tour bus and dropped everything off in Timmins.

The Shania Twain Centre (in and around Timmins, it is simply and affectionately known and "The Centre") sits atop a hill on one side of the small northern Ontario town. Its wide archways and vaulted ceilings welcome over 14,000 visitors a year, and yet it is as far away from ostentatious as Timmins is from Lake Geneva, where Shania currently calls home. Though it opened in 2001, the ribbon-cutting ceremony had to wait until now; the singer was "very pregnant" at the time, making travel impossible, But on this cold, wet and windy day, Timmins's most beloved daughter came home. And what a homecoming it was! Hundreds of fans braved freezing temperatures for hours to catch a glimpse of the woman who's made them all so proud. As she took to the microphone to officially open the Shania Twain Centre, a francophone fan asked her if she planned to ever record a French song. To the amazement of everyone in the crowd, Shania answered the woman in French. It seems that Eja's Franch lessons have rubbed off on this mother. By any standard, the woman is perfectly bilingual. How much more Canadian can you get?

The next day, we left Timmins for Toronto, where Shania co-hosted Canada AM. She fed off the live audience in Dundas Square like an old pro. On our way back to the airport, where she was scheduled to fly to Nashville, we talked politics, country music, and the prospect of doing all this over again sometime.

Shania Twain is an unparalleled Canadian success story. The expression "rags to riches" has been pinned on her many times, but it doesn't stick because it does not do her justice. Everything she has, everything she is, she has earned. Strip away the shiny trappings of fame, and what you'll be left with is the Shania you will see on her CTV special.

It was one heck of a homecoming."

Thanks Jud and Knight1...That was a particularly heart warming story about Ben Mulroney's Up! close and personal encounter with Shania Twain...That guy is one lucky dude to get a tour like that from Shania Twain no less...I am definately a bit envious. Hope he will share with us eventually what Shania told him...I loved the way Shania also suprised all those students in her High School...I bet she was grinning from ear to ear eh! Shania is just so cool to suprise everyone like that...But congrats should go to Ben Mulroney for being able to relate so well with Shania...I am quite certain that Shania enjoyed being with Ben Mulroney from his description of the tour of Timmins...

:hyst:


My god, I hope that UK site does not get a hold of this, they will take it totally out of context. First she wants to dump Mutt in Lake Geneva, and now drop Eja off into the woods. hehe hehe

I am quite sure that Shania will not send him into the woods on his own without proper training....Shania will give Eja that woodsy training as she has had plenty of it...Hopefully though she will understand to drop Eja off amongst Ojibwe peers would be difficult for him because then he would be moving in new circles of friends...That don't always work out well..It would all depend on the personnality of Eja and how he will adapt to his Ojibwe collegues...

I know that. I know she was joking on both accounts, but that site in the UK and a few other places was calling her a would be murderess over the comment she made in TV guide.

People will always over react to the comments others make...Shania could have used a better choice of words in describing her frustrations with Mutt and I am sure Shania and Mutt have their moments like any other couple does...But for the most part Shania and Mutt work together really well together..Shania has said so many times herself that they work really well together...The trouble is people have a tendency to focus on those bad moments...Shania needs to be aware of how her comments can impact the media...But we all make mistakes Chris...Shania is just as human as the rest of us...But we know that Shania adores Mutt and would never do any of those things...

Her point on her son is valid and I'm very sure not meant to be taken verbatim. She was making a very important point about a childs need to understand the "real" world in order to survive. A point I happen to very much agree with her on. DOC

cbspock 11-24-2004 03:00 PM

It is gonna be a really cool special, especially for the group that was in Timmins, now we get to see what was going on from Shania's perspective.
