Corrie Contest on CBC

The good folks over at the CBC have sent me the following info:

CBC NEWS: MORNING gets off to an exciting start this September, as Harry Forestell gets the scoop on CORONATION STREET, one of the world’s most popular soap operas. Catch cast interviews and a behind-the-scenes tour of the famous Rovers Return pub.

Beginning Monday, September 17, watch exclusive on-set interviews with leading cast members including Sir William Roache (Ken Barlow), Simon Gregson (Steve McDonald), Julie Hesmondhalgh (Hayley Cropper) and more. Interviews will be broadcast each morning during the week of September 17 at 7:38 a.m. and 9:38 a.m. ET on CBC Newsworld.

Viewers can then log on to to answer questions about the televised interviews. Daily winners will be awarded special Corrie prize packs, and all entrants will be entered for the grand prize trip to the CORONATION STREET set in Manchester.

Interview times on CBC Newsworld (all are A.M.):

Monday to Friday, September 17 to 21, 2007

Newfoundland 9:08 and 11:08
Martimes 8:38 and 10:38
Quebec and Ontario 7:38 and 9:38
Manitoba 6:38 and 8:38
Saskatchewan and Alberta 5:38 and 7:38
British Columbia 4:38 and 6:38

PLEASE NOTE: The cast interviews are broadcast on CBC News: Morning on CBC Newsworld - not on CBC Television (the channel where Coronation Street airs).

Ah. One of the phantom CBC channels which even Americans living right on the border cannot get...

I tried to get Country Canada a few months ago (I heard a rumor Corrie Classics were being aired there).

The person at the dish company had NO CLUE, and just for good measure, if I got the dish, I would lose CBC itself.

Well, crap.

Can anyone from BC tell me the place on the dial for this? Thanks for the heads-up.

I'll try to look it up on the internet.

Anyone know how long each interview is? I'm thinking maybe 10 minutes or so, have to set the timer for 7:35 to 8 to be safe I guess.
