Loss & Legacy On the first anniversary of September 11th, CBC Radio presents LOSS & LEGACY: REFLECTIONS OF SEPTEMBER 11TH, a nine-and-a-half-hour special beginning at 8:30 a.m. ET, designed to help Canadians understand and share the many interpretations of the events of September 11th, and reflect personally on the significance of the day.

LOSS & LEGACY will focus on the emotions people have experienced in the past year, from a perspective that is uniquely Canadian. There will be few experts or pundits analyzing the day and the intervening year, telling listeners what to think.

More than 20 Canadian writers and musicians have been specially commissioned to produce an original work for this broadcast that reflects an emotional aspect of September 11th. The artists include poets George Elliott Clarke, Patrick Friesen, George Murray and Molly Peacock; novelists Anita Rau Badami and Kerri Sakamoto; dramatists Florence Gibson, Dave Carley and Marcus Youssef; musicians Adam Goddard, Hawksley Workman, the Ennis Sisters and Fred Eaglesmith; and sound art composers Gavin Bryars, Hildegard Westerkamp and Darren Copeland. Their works will be interwoven throughout the special.
