Canadians have remarkable stories to tell.
For 75 years, the CBC has enabled us to share those stories with each other. On Sunday August 21st , we celebrate that rich heritage with the documentary 1 Day, a unique 24 hour portrait of Canada unlike anything we've done before. 1 Day is a true co-production between the CBC, and you.
On April 30th, CBC travelled from coast to coast, capturing the lives of remarkable characters in a single day. From inside the control room at Hockey Night in Canada, to backstage with an opera diva...from the horse pen on a remote ranch to back alleys with cops on the beat , our crews were there. Read more about the characters CBC filmed.
But we also asked you to tell us your stories -- and you did! Canadians in every region seized the opportunity to provide a glimpse into their lives by filming their day. See the entry gallery.
The result? A special 2 hour documentary celebrating the magic in everyday moments - a story of Canada in 1 Day.
This program will repeat on CBC-TV Thursday November 3 at 8 pm.
