CBC celebrates 75 years of War Coverage (Nov. 2011 Encore)

Seventy-five years of war coverage. Since CBC first went to air, we have covered wars and conflicts around the world. Rewind has the last in the series of programs that looks at 75 years of CBC Radio. Michael Enright's co-host is Peter Armstrong, host of CBC Radio's World Report, and together they look at how CBC has covered war from the Second World War through the Cold War, draft dodgers, the Cruise Missile and United Nations peacekeepers.
