1 Day CBC

1 Day. 24 Hours. 34 Million Lives.

On any ordinary day in Canada, extraordinary things happen.

Canadians have remarkable stories to tell. And for the past 75 years, the CBC has enabled us to share those stories with each other.

This year, we celebrate this rich heritage with 1 Day, a special CBC/Radio Canada documentary and online project that invites all Canadians to help create a unique 24 hour portrait of Canada, from midnight to 11:59, coast to coast.

The two hour documentary, to be filmed on April 30th, 2011, is a joint project – between us and you.

For 24 hours, our crews will span the country. We'll follow some of Canada’s most fascinating figures as their day unfolds – from emergency physicians to cops, cultural icons to sports stars.

But 1 Day will also draw on videos and photos sent in by Canadians who seize this unique opportunity to provide a glimpse into their lives, their families, their communities.
