CTV AND INSIGHT PRODUCTIONS CORRECT CLIP IN TUESDAY NIGHT’S EPISODE, 'LEST WE FORGET'
As the result of an editing error, an archival image of German POW soldiers being led by Allied forces was unintentionally displayed for three seconds alongside clips of Canadian soldiers on Tuesday night’s broadcast of "The Amazing Race Canada," entitled “Lest We Forget”. The image was displayed while Racers read from an inscription at the Bčny-sur-Mer Canadian War Cemetery in Normandy, France.
One of our viewers thankfully brought this to our attention and producers have since replaced it with an image of the Bčny-sur-Mer Canadian War Cemetery for all future encore broadcasts of the episode.
Reflecting on Canada’s emotional connection to Normandy and one of this country’s most impactful moments in world history – D-Day, and the end of the Second World War – Tuesday’s episode resonated with viewers who flocked to social media to share their messages of support for Canadian soldiers past and present.
CTV and Insight Productions apologize if the inadvertent use of this image distracted in any way from what was a heartfelt tribute to the Canadian Forces.
