Brief substance “‘A Participant’s History?’: The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) and the Manipulation of Oral History” is a critical examination of the CBC’s use of oral histories in its historical programming. ‘It examines two CBC productions on Canada’s military history: In Flanders’ Fields, a seventeen-part radio series on the First World War that aired from November 11, 1964 to March 7, 1965; and, The Valour and the Horror, a three-part television series on events of the Second World War that aired in 1992. This article shows how both projects manipulated oral history sources and engaged in “thesis-based” research in order to communicate or reinforce preconceived narratives of each war. A comparison of the unedited interview transcripts from the extensive interviews conducted with Canadian veterans for In Flanders’ Fields, and the subsequent edited material, reveals a pattern of a flawed research methodology that would be mirrored again during the making of The Valour and the Horror
