Hockey: A People’s History is a CBC Television Documentary that first aired in 2006.
Much like an earlier documentray Canada: A People’s History, the series told the history of the sport of hockey from a personal perspective, giving voice to various individuals, major and minor, as the sport grows and evolves in Canada.
There was an accompanying book by the same name authored by award-winning documentary film-maker Michael McKinley.
We speak with Michael McKinley about Hockey: A People’s History, and about just what hockey has meant and continues to mean to Canada.
