The National goes online
• In February 1995 radio.cbc.ca went live, offering broadcast schedules and transcripts, as well as on-demand audio clips from Ideas, Quirks & Quarks and As It Happens. Three months later, in May, CBC.ca went live, followed by television.cbc.ca in September 1995. • By comparison, the BBC did not officially launch its online site (bbc.co.uk) until December 1997, though it did have an online presence beginning in 1994.
