From a media release:
CBC today announced that new 8×30 docu-series KEEPING CANADA SAFE will premiere with back-to-back episodes on Thursday, March 16 at 9 p.m. (9:30 NT) on CBC. Filmed over a single 48-hour period, KEEPING CANADA SAFE provides an unprecedented behind-the-scenes look at the people and emergency services tasked with protecting Canadians. Produced by Force Four Entertainment in association with CBC, the series lifts the veil and explores what it means to be safe in a rapidly changing world, while showcasing the intimate and dramatic stories of Canada’s everyday heroes who face tremendous challenges and put their lives at risk to keep Canadians safe. Two back-to-back episodes will air Thursdays at 9 p.m. (9:30 NT) on CBC.
In each episode of KEEPING CANADA SAFE, viewers will be privy to a dramatic, day-in-the-life snapshot of emergency services across the country including police, firefighters, airport security, Canadian Forces, CSIS agents, grassroots volunteers and more. Over two days in September 2016, 60 camera crews descended across Canada’s streets, airspace, parks and homes to capture the action-packed and inspiring stories of those working to protect the country, both within and outside its borders. With unparalleled access, more than 47 organizations were filmed at work in 34 different cities across 10 provinces and two territories to create this thorough and immersive program.
Based on the format from ITV, KEEPING CANADA SAFE is a follow up to 2015’s KEEPING CANADA ALIVE.
