Behind the scenes at the 2015 Canada Winter Games

Feb 17, 2015

The first Canada Games TV TODAY episode aired on Monday thanks to the incredible work done by a team of talented BCIT and francophone broadcast and production students. 

On a tight timeline, these students work hard each day to capture footage and interviews from venues across Prince George.
