A Day at the CBC in Vancouver

Published by at 3:26 pm under Canada,new media,Photos

I dropped by the new CBC’s new broadcast center in downtown Vancouver for it’s open house. It’s a fantastic facility, but more important than the building infrastructure itself are the people who work there. I got a chance to meet with some of them, learn about how the CBC functions behind the scenes and discover a new animal species that appears to resemble a giant walking hockey puck.

I recorded my experience on my iPhone for posterity. I hope you enjoy “A Day at the CBC”.

While at the open house, I donated to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank. You should, too. It’s a great cause.

UPDATE: Excellent coverage of CBC’s open house at Vancouver Is Awesome.

    Good work Jonathon. We should collaborate on a video together sometime since we have all this free time on our hands. Er, I had no idea the iPhone could do such quality. Amazing!

    Did you ask anyone in CBC News why they tried so hard to bury the ClimateGate story?

    Everyone knows they are in the bad for the eco-grifters, but what were they thinking? That we wouldn’t find out anyway?

    I mean teh boggest scientific scandal scam ever and the CBC embargoed the story for 13 days.

    Great job. Hilarious subtitles. Was busy at UXCamp, so could not come down.

    Just out of curiosity, did anyone ask about the removal of classical music from Radio 2 and disbanding of the CBC Radio Orchestra?
