First broadcast across Canada in 1965, Ideas is one of the oldest and most respected radio programmes in the world. An hour-long show, Ideas is broadcast on CBC Radio every weeknight and enjoys an average audience of almost 800,000 listeners (not including podcasts, electronic streaming and other forms of new media distribution). Ideas will deliver On the Move to a wide and diverse audience as it explores what host Paul Kennedy refers to as “the core curriculum of contemporary civilization.”
As a media partner, Paul Kennedy and the CBC Ideas team are producing a series of radio documentaries based on research undertaken as part of the On the Move Partnership. These documentaries are broadcast during the regular Ideas broadcast season and archived online at the Ideas website.
Workers on the move and the social and political implications of employment-related mobility are of great interest to Paul Kennedy and the CBC Ideas team. Topics for the Ideas On the Move radio documentaries are determined through consultation and cooperation with the On the Move Partnership research team, and illustrate the inherent human interest and potential policy implications of On the Move. To date five CBC Ideas On the Move radio documentaries have been produced and broadcast, another two are in the works.
