CBC News: Sunday

CBC News: Sunday was a weekly television newsmagazine series in Canada, which aired on Sunday mornings on both CBC Newsworld and CBC Television. The program first went on the air in February 2002, offering exclusive and headline news, behind-the-scenes reports, in-depth interviews with world leaders and newsmakers such as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Ralph Nader, Kofi Annan and the Dalai Lama.

The program, hosted by Evan Solomon and Carole MacNeil, focused on ethics, spirituality and media accountability. It covered current news stories, but also examined how these stories were covered by the media. After eight seasons on air, on May 31, 2009, CBC News: Sunday aired its final episode in front of a live audience in the CBC Atrium.

The show has won more than 40 national and international awards and nominations: "Deadline Iraq: Uncensored Stories of the War," a gripping documentary about what the public doesn't see from the front in Iraq, won the Red Cross Prize at the Monte Carlo TV Festival; “Beyond Words: Photographers of War” won Best Short Feature, National at the 2005 Gabriel Awards, as well as a Bronze Medal at the 2005 Columbus International Film & Video Festival, and a 2005 Gemini Award Nomination for Best Magazine Segment, while Evan Solomon won the 2005 Gemini for Best Host Interviewer.

In 2007, the feature documentary Mississippi Cold Case by David Ridgen, that started its life on CBC News: Sunday, made international headlines and won over a dozen major international awards[1] after playing a lead role in the indictment, trial, and conviction of James Ford Seale,[2][3] a Mississippi Ku Klux Klansman who assisted in the kidnapping and murder of Henry Hezekiah Dee and Charles Eddie Moore, two African American 19 year-olds in 1964 Mississippi. The film went on to open INPUT 2008 in Johannesburg, South Africa.[4]

CBC News: Sunday's sister evening prime-time program CBC News: Sunday Night, also hosted by Solomon and MacNeil, featured the latest breaking news from around the world, coupled with a selection of investigative reports, newsmaker interviews and fly-on-the wall features.
