The Best of Alberta Primetime

Cohousing in Alberta
Original Air Date: Friday, July 18, 2014

We’re taking a look inside Alberta’s first and only cohousing cooperative, discussing why these close knit communities are gaining popularity, and how they provide an ecofriendly living option in Alberta’s growing urban centers.

We’re joined by Brian Scott from The Communitas Group and Darcy Fleming from Urban Green Cohousing.

8000 Mentors
Original Air Date: Thursday, July 24, 2014
A new campaign was launched earlier this month, and the goal is to attract new mentors for each of the nearly 8000 children and youth foster care.

Brad Murphy and Lana Tordoff, from Boys & Girls Clubs Big Brothers Big Sisters, tell us more about the campaign and its importance.

Urban bees
Original Air Date: Wednesday, July 23, 2014

Yukon Jack on the pros of urban beekeeping (and how wonderful bees are in general).

Urban beekeeping
Original Air Date: Friday, July 25, 2014

The City of Edmonton recently announced they will be starting a pilot project for urban bees in the city. We’re heading out to Sherwood Park with local beekeeping group YEG Bees to find out what goes into starting and maintain a healthy hive.

We’re joined by Jocelyn Crocker, YEG Bees; Carlos Castillo, National Bee Diagnostic Centre; and Grant Hicks, Alberta Beekeepers Commission.

Bretton & Kara, equestrian show jumpers
Original Air Date: Friday, August 08, 2014 

They’re Calgarians, but these sibling show jumpers have been competing around the world for most of their lives.

LGBTQ history
Original Air Date: Thursday, June 05, 2014

The stigma and underground nature of much of LGBTQ history in the province has prevented many stories from being told, but now two separate projects in Edmonton and Calgary are attempting to draw out the untold history of these communities using photos, oral history and maps.

We’re joined by Darrin Hagen, playwright and author, and Tereasa Maillie, Calgary Gay History Project.

Making IMAX movies
Original Air Date: Friday, May 02, 2014

IMAX movies do an incredible job of bringing some truly breathtaking scenes to viewers, and it’s easy to think about how much fun it would be to shoot those scenes for a living. That’s exactly what Dylan Reade does, and he may have the world’s best job.
