Bringing the Story to Life

The editing suite is where the magic of the series happens. When the production work in the field is completed, the scenes shot, the archival material gathered together, and the script outline completed, the editors get to work weaving the elements together into a narrative form.

Finally, the visual effects, music, sound effects and narration are added to enhance and complete the project. A total of seven experienced editors worked on Canada: A People's History.

Murray Green has spent nearly 20 years editing documentaries for television. He was senior editor on the series Dawn of the Eye that won numerous international awards.
