The year is 1976
As CBC marks its 75th anniversary, take a look back at what the public broadcaster was celebrating as it turned 40 in 1976.
Closed Circuit was a publication directed at CBC employees. The Nov. 2, 1976 issue was a special publication to mark CBC's 40th anniversary.
The magazine contains memories of the early days of CBC as well as reflections from people who worked for the young broadcasting organization.
You can check out pictures, interviews and timelines that chronicles the CBC's formative years - including key news stories and expansions to remote communities, and its evolution from just radio to a radio-television broadcaster.
Learn about how reporting during the Second World War was "primitive by today's standards" in 1976 and how the famous "he shoots, he scores" line in Hockey Night In Canada
came to be. Read about the Olympic coverage at the Montreal Games and the excitement around the launch of Anik 1, the world's first domestic communications satellite.
The document is a unique look at what CBC achieved in its first 40 years and a good moment for reflection on what the public broadcaster has done in the 35 years since this publication came out.
