First Look at NEW 2018 Masterpiece Program – Child in Time

Set two years after his daughter went missing, The Child In Time follows Stephen Lewis (Benedict Cumberbatch), a children's author, as he struggles to find purpose in his life without her. His wife Julie (Kelly Macdonald) has left him and his best friends Charles (Campbell Moore) and Thelma (Saskia Reeves) have retired to the countryside, battling demons of their own. With tenderness and insight, the film explores the dark territory of a marriage devastated, the loss of childhood, the fluidity of time, grief, hope and acceptance. The Child in Time will air in 2018 on Masterpiece.

Black Students United, a student organization at Cornell University, is demanding the fraternity, Psi Upsilon be permanently banned from campus. This comes in reaction to a black Cornell junior being called the N-word, and then physically assaulted, sending the student to the hospital. Black Students United held a protest Wednesday and delivered demands to President Martha Pollack. The Psi Upsilon alumni board has told the school they’d close the chapter immediately. Cornell banned it last year for conduct code violations.
