CBC Program Guide


From the mezzanine to the mosh pit, from the silver screen to Can lit, >play takes on the wide world of arts and entertainment with energy, passion and irreverence.

>play features news, reviews, views and interviews from the hottest cultural happenings in Canada and around the world. Like its host, Jian Ghomeshi, >play is smart, sexy, sophisticated and urbane, with an insider's perspective on arts and entertainment.

>play keeps viewers informed and up-to-date on the latest developments and must-see events in the worlds of movies, books, television, art, rock 'n roll, design, opera and more. It probes the minds and motivations of blockbuster stars and up-and-coming talents.

>play's home base is Movenpick's wildly colourful Palavrion restaurant in CBC's Toronto Broadcast Centre. The late-night live show kicks off each week with a quirky take on the latest entertainment news from Steve Burgess in Vancouver. Burgess is part of an eclectic group of in-the-know players who join Ghomeshi each week with fresh insights into entertainment and new discoveries in the arts.

Whether >play is stalking the corporate rave, contemporizing the violin, doing time with Elmore Leonard, checking out "starchitects" or showcasing a musical genius, the show is hip, energizing and essential viewing for arts and entertainment consumers.
