The Rose Peddler was produced for the CBC radio program IDEAS. This program was an experiment that used DAB radio technology. DAB, Data Associated Broadcasting is a form of radio that transmits images and audio. The program was comprised of a series of interviews, a scripted story line, a performance art work and many images. This information was formed into a documentary that explored gender stereotypes in conjunction with the history of the rose and how it has been used as a symbol in art and popular culture. This DAB program was developed under the guidance and expertise of CBC’s producer Max Allen.
2000 – (November 8) The Rose Peddler was broad cast on the CBC Radio 2 program IDEAS.
