International Broadcasting Centre

The participation of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in Expo 67 takes the form of a low rectangular building, with Greek-style colonnade, which will be the "home away from home" for all the television and radio broadcasters telling the story of Expo 67 to the world.

The International Broadcasting Centre is situated in Cité du Havre and visitors will be taken on guided tours.  Through large slanted window panels they may watch artists and technicians work.  An observation gallery has been provided for one of two large television studios, the largest the CBC has ever built.  Visitors will also be able to sit-in for all kinds of  programs, news to opera, in the studio.

There are six radio studios, four mobile television units, three radio mobile units, and the latest in services and technical equipment.  The entire building is air-conditioned.

One of the outstanding features of the center is a vast plaza.  It will be used as an outdoor radio studio and will display colour photographs and diagrams to show the important role of radio and TV in the life of Man and his World.

Visitors will be able to reach the International Broadcasting Centre by bridge direct from Expo's main entrance at Place d'Accueil in Cité du Havre.  Visitors from other points in Expo can travel by Expo-Express to Place d'Accueil.
