October 16 - 23, 2010


VO proudly presents the world premiere of its new commissioned opera by Canada's foremost opera-creation team: composer John Estacio and librettist John Murrell.

In 1927, young Lillian Alling arrives in New York City from Russia in desperate search of a man called Jozéf. Penniless, she walks across North America and into the wilds of northwestern BC, following Jozéf's elusive path. During her brave trek, she is embraced by a Norwegian farming community in North Dakota, incarcerated in Oakalla Prison Farm near Vancouver, and loved by Scotty, a lineman along BC's "telegraph trail".


fantasticks.jpgOctober 2 - 23, 2010

The Fantasticks tells the story of a young man and the girl next door, whose parents have built a wall to keep them apart. The youngsters nevertheless contrive to meet and fall in love. This is a simple but beautiful story of the quintessential celebration of love in all its gorgeous simplicity and heartbreaking complexity.

Sept23NewsRoadshowRichmond 093.jpgThe sights, the sounds, the smells!

Yes, the aromatic smells of the street food at the Richmond Night Market created quite a distraction for the CBC News Vancouver team on our last day On The Road.

The Richmond Night Market is a popular destination for tourist and residents alike and proved to be a wonderful location for the live broadcast.

The Richmond Youth Honour Choir were on hand to provide a smooth musical backdrop as the weather turned a little misty.

With skates in hand, and an abundance of enthusiasm, kids and their parents lined up to get on the ice for a free family skate. And if that wasn't enough, there were free hot dogs, the chance to win prizes and of course, meet their favourite CBC News Vancouver personalities.

CBC VANCOUVER'S NEWS DAY IN B.C. RETURNS ON NOVEMBER 18

RTNDA Award winning high school student media project now includes print journalism

September 15, 2010 - Registration is underway for the 3rd News Day in B.C. journalism initiative developed by CBC Vancouver. The Vancouver Sun is partnering with CBC this year, which will allow students the opportunity to write for the major daily newspaper.

"Partnering with the Vancouver Sun is a great fit for News Day in B.C.," says Johnny Michel, Managing Director of CBC British Columbia. "Students have successfully taken over CBC's radio, television and online platforms to share stories that are important to their generation, and adding print will give them an additional voice in their community."

The project is open to high school students in grade 10-12 in Metro Vancouver and begins with workshops at the CBC Vancouver Broadcast Centre September 25 and 26. During the workshops, CBC reporters and hosts as well at journalists from The Vancouver Sun will teach students the principals of researching, writing and producing news stories.

Following the workshops, students will audition for one of 30 coveted student reporter spots. Students who secure a spot will then work with their CBC and Vancouver Sun mentors to develop, write and produce their stories for broadcast on November 18.

This hands-on program allows students the unique opportunity to shape the news and highlight important issues through mainstream media. Past stories featured on News Day in B.C. include the rise of "sexting" using cell phones to send explicit pictures and messages, the rise of plastic surgery among teens and a new grading system implemented by the provincial government.

On November 18, stories will be heard on CBC Radio's The Early Edition and On The Coast, seen on CBC News Vancouver at 5, 5:30 and 6, appear on cbc.ca/bc throughout the day and in The Vancouver Sun. On radio and tv, students will co-host segments, as well as report on sports and weather.

For more information on News Day in B.C., register and see footage from last year, visit the website at www.cbc.ca/bc/newsday, follow the hashtag #cbcnewsday on Twitter and join us on Facebook at CBC Vancouver.

dr. peter_photo.jpgTwenty years ago, CBC television broadcast the Dr. Peter Diaries - a touching, honest, and deeply personal account of young physician Dr. Peter Jepson-Young's experience with  HIV/AIDs. At a time when too few knew the difference between myth and medical reality, his story brought a human face to the epidemic.

From September 7 - 17, in commemoration of the 20th Anniversary of the Dr. Peter Diaries, CBC Radio One's The Early Edition will be dedicating a special series to examine the changing face of HIV/AIDS.

From September 7 - 9, host Rick Cluff will take you on a journey to revisit the archival tape from the diaries. You'll also hear from guests like Dr. Jay Wortaner, whose idea spawned what was later an Academy Award-nominated series and Dr. Peter's mother Shirley Young.

On September 10, The Early Edition will be broadcasting a live show from the Dr. Peter Centre. We invite you to join us at 1110 Comox Street in Vancouver from 5:30 - 8:30 am. If you would like to be part of the audience, please RSVP to cbc.vancouver.communications@cbc.ca by Wednesday, September 8, 2010.

During the show, Rick will be talking to Maxine Davis, Executive Director of the Dr. Peter Centre, film maker David Paperny and Sue Ridout who battled the politics of the day to produce the series, and Dr. Julio Montaner the president of the International AIDS Society and at one point, Peter's physician. Singer-songwriter Carolyn Neapole will also be performing throughout and sharing her experience as the music therapist of the Centre.
