On Saturday October 1, CBC is throwing open its doors with Open Houses, inviting you to come in and have a look around for Culture Days, celebrating everything arts and culture from coast to coast to coast. Wherever you are, you won't be far away from a CBC building that's opening its doors. In 32 cities you'll be able to get a behind the scenes look at how CBC works like never before - anyone can take advantage of a wide range of experiences, like appearing on camera, recording radio messages, going inside satellite trucks and learning how a news story is produced from start to finish.
Part of CBC's 75th Anniversary celebrations, CBC Open Houses is bringing the art of broadcasting to all Canadians. And if you can't make it to one of our Open Houses locations, the festivities officially begin on Friday, September 30 with A Kick Off to Culture Days. We here at CBC Live will be streaming live from Vancouver up until 6pm, with the days events being kicked off by Johnny Reid. At midnight, CBC TV is broadcasting Midnight Music: A Concert for Culture Days hosted by Jian Ghomeshi and featuring Stars, The New Pornographers and The Midway State.
