RTDNA Canada recognizes Philip Coulter with a Central Region Lifetime Achievement Award

About Philip

I produce radio documentaries for the CBC Radio programme “Ideas”. I’m particularly interested in social issues, human rights and culture, and over the past twenty years some typical projects have been programmes about: the refugee crisis in Calais, the rise of the Far Right in Europe, the Guantanamo detainees, the rebuilding of South Africa, the collapse of Yugoslavia, James Joyce in Trieste, the politics of Allen Ginsberg, Frank Zappa’s musical innovation, anarchism, sailing alone around the world and the medieval knightly orders. Since the mid-90’s I’ve also produced the annual five-hour Massey Lectures radio series. I started my career at the CBC producing radio drama in Montreal and later worked as a features and music producer.
