As It Happens

Listening to As It Happens is like taking a trip around the world five nights a week. For more than 40 years, using the simplest of tools - the telephone - this current affairs program has explored the heart of a story, whether it's happening in the streets of Belgrade, the dockyards of Vancouver, the boardrooms of Bay Street, or the kitchens of Paris.

While other programs turn to journalists and analysts, As It Happens frequently gets its stories from "the horse's mouth" - securing interviews with world leaders, rabble-rousers, bingo callers and deposed dictators. The show has a soft spot for the eccentric, and never turns its nose up at something wild, weird or wacky. As It Happens shuns "pack journalism," searching instead for the story behind the story.

This program belongs to the following categories:

  • Documentary
  • Lifestyle & Human Interest
