Voice of Canada: Radio Canada International

Rewind

Today the Voice of Canada - Radio Canada International. When it was first established in February 1945, the CBC International Service was intended for broadcast to Canadian Forces overseas.

On this show we look back on RCI's six and a half decades of shortwave radio.
