A Christmas Carol of the Airwaves

CBC has a long history of performing Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" in churches, libraries, and community groups across the country. But this year at Daybreak, we decided to do something a little different. We invited some of northern B.C.'s familiar voices to join CBC hosts and personalities to take on different readings. Over the past week, we've broadcasting these readings during Daybreak North, and as we head off the air for the rest of 2011, we wanted to share these readings with you. Bear in mind that this performance was broken up into two parts over a week of broadcasts, so the transitions are a bit rough-- we wanted you to know who was reading which part. The hosts introducing the readings this week were Carolina DeRyk, Betsy Trumpener, Andrew Kurjata and Robert Doane. The vast majority of this performance was produced by Jenifer Norwell and Betsy Trumpener in Prince George and Carolina DeRyk and George Baker in Prince Rupert, with post-production from Wil Fundal and Robert Doane.

Enjoy!
