Full episodes


Episode One: What If?

A story of Calgary; a story of any city or any life. How can you reconcile the murky past with the murky present?


EPISODE TWO: New Coronation Place

A 70-storey tower was once proposed for the north side of the 200 block of 17th Avenue. Episode two draws on excerpts from a pamphlet for the building, discovered at the Canadian Architectural Archives. Presented with permission from the original publisher, Calvantage Monument.


EPISODE THREE: THE FALSE PROMISE OF CHANGE

Change — an accident, a desire, an injunction. But what of its promise of something better. False, it rings on the ear. False, it plays out always.
