CBC celebrates 75 years of Regional Programming (Web extra)


On this week's Rewind, a look at regional programming. We might live in this great dominion called Canada, but we also live in our neighbourhoods and towns, cities and provinces. And the stories that affect our lives in those places are at least as important to us as the bigger national stories- sometimes even more so. On this episode Michael Enright's co-host is Peter Brown. Peter hosts CBC Edmonton's afternoon show, Radio Active. This clip looks at stories from Quebec- a look at the Quebec carnival in 1957, the language law debates from the late 70s, a conversation with the Quebec Acadian writer Antonine Maillet, a visit to the ice storm of 1998, and memories of former premier Maurice Duplessis with the publisher and historian Conrad Black.
