CBC is 75 Years Old!

In celebration of the CBC/Radio-Canada 75th Anniversary, it has chosen the theme "Your to Celebrate". CBC/Radio-Canada was established in November, 1936.

If you go on the site you will see a special place where they have archived several radio programs, and TV shows.

There is also a very interesting blog on the site, and a Timeline which takes you back to such things as the Springhill Mine Disaster, The CBC's First Colour TV Show, and Churchill's Funeral.
