Three decades of As It Happens

The Story

To celebrate 30 years of CBC Radio's As It Happens, former hosts have gathered to reminisce inside the radio studio. Current host Mary Lou Finlay talks about the pressure of not disappointing the legions of loyal listeners who have grown up with the program. It's a concern the audience doesn't seem to share.
