Local production company partners with CPAC for documentaries broadcast

An Ottawa production studio announced Thursday it has found a home for two commemorative World War I documentaries.

Sound Venture Productions will partner with the Cable Public Affairs Channel (CPAC) to broadcast Drawn to Victory and Wings of Courage this fall.

Drawn to Victory is about wartime mapping, while Wings of Courage tells the story of Canadian pilots during the Great War.

“We are extremely honoured to have CPAC on board for our special commemorative project,” Sound Venture president Tim Joyce said in a statement. “We look forward to bringing these great stories to the Canadian public in the months ahead.”

The documentaries, both 48 minutes long, will be broadcast in both official languages, with Ottawa native Dan Aykroyd handling the English narration and Bernard Voyer doing the French narration.

The productions are part of a larger educational partnership with the Royal Canadian Geographical Society and are funded in part by the Department of Canadian Heritage.
