If Day: The Nazi Invasion of Winnipeg
34:25

On 19 February 1942, Nazi soldiers, tanks and planes invaded the capital of Manitoba. Seizing Winnipeg, they captured the Premier, Major and Governor General. They looted stores, burned books and threatened a death sentence without trial to all who opposed.

This isn't some alternative history fiction. This was the brain child of the Greater Winnipeg Victory Loan organization.

The event was a huge performance to raise money for the war effort, striking the fear of a real invasion into the heart of 'Friendly Manitoba'.

Project Surname
33:10

Before the arrival of Europeans, the Inuit had a complex naming tradition that reflected their culture, environment, animals, family and spirits. In the 1940's the Canadian Government ignored them and gave everyone numbered disks. By the late 60's they thought it might be better to let the people choose a surname. So they sent the scholar Abe Okpik to help them choose and record. We explore this far from perfect solution and the amazing life of Abe Okpik.
