Watch the final edition of CBC News: Around the World
Friday, October 23, 2009

(Video pops up in a new window.)

CBC News: Around the World presented a half-hour of international news at 7:00 PM ET, Monday-Friday, on CBC Newsworld. The program featured the best international coverage from CBC foreign correspondents.

The program debuted February 19, 2007.

The final broadcast was October 23, 2009. Here's how anchor Harry Forestell signed off that night:

"Well that's it for us. Hard to believe it's over already.

"Through more than two years and over 450 programs the team here at Around the World has tried to make the world a little bit smaller, a little bit more accessible, maybe even a little bit more understandable. We hope we succeeded....

"And, that's our last journey, around the world, thanks for being with us."

Since May 4, 2009, the video of the latest edition of the program was online.
