Rose Lake’s Colour V Ranch owners Cheryl and Peter Van Immerzeel and their three children   Elizabeth, 6, Trace, 4, and Zadie-Lynn, 18 months, were chosen to represent Canada’s farm families in the documentary.

To create 1 Day, in celebration of the network’s 75th anniversary, CBC camera crews scattered out across the Canada on April 30 to follow a number of Canadians throughout their day, while CBC viewers and listeners were also invited to send in their own video footage documenting activities that day.

1-Day aired for the first time in August when many people may have been on holidays and missed it so it is being aired again, says CBC spokesperson Jackie Carlos. “Fun for the whole family, and don’t just take my word for it … people liked it,” Carlos says.

A series of statistics help connect the stories from across the country.

One statistic notes that 3.3 million Canadians work at night, often among them farmers.

The opening scene tracks two Vancouver police officers as they patrol the city’s drug-plagued downtown eastside in the wee hours of the morning. Soon after the scene jumps to the Colour V Ranch where Cheryl  is tending to a pregnant horse at 1 a.m.

Throughout the documentary, filming switches back to the Colour V Ranch which raises high quality riding and work horses, Aussie Border Collie pups and swine.

One scene shows piglets being weaned from their mothers. In another scene a group of Rose Lake/Miocene 4-H Club members come to the ranch for a horse grooming workshop.

“We thought it was a great documentary, it is strange to think that with 24 hours of filming there was only enough room on the show for about five minutes,” Cheryl says. She says they would like to see all of the footage taken on their ranch and several people have told them that they wished all the footage of them was together in one clip, but she recognizes that the point of the documentary was to show activities in various parts of the country at specific times of the day.

 

“It was quite neat to see the different ways of life,” Cheryl says. “I must say though it was sure strange for all of us to see ourselves on TV and to have family phone and say wow, it was great to watch that and say — ‘That’s my sister, or that’s my grandkids, etc.’ — Everything around here is just as it was before.”
