The Eve of the Millennium

The CBC rang in the new millennium across all six Canadian time zones with star-studded performances, fantastic fireworks and multiple renditions of Auld Lang Syne. CBC Television's marathon 26-hour New Year's worldwide special, 2000 Today, was the most ambitious live project in the corporation's history. CBC Radio ushered in the 21st century with its 20-hour live broadcast, "Champagne, Moose and Maple Syrup."
