Spotlight on UNBC

Spotlight on UNBC logo“Spotlight on UNBC” was a promotional television show created by the UNBC Communications Department and was shown on the local Prince George Shaw television channel. The first 30-minute episode of “Spotlight on UNBC” aired in February 1993 and continued with one episode a month until 1998, when it switched to one episode every other month. After the year 2000, the show began to evolve into various shorter iterations for Shaw television audiences. The host of “Spotlight on UNBC”, as well as the show’s later iterations, was Rob van Adrichem. Northern BC Archives holds the complete run of the original “Spotlight on UNBC” episode masters from February 1993 to December 2000. "Spotlight on UNBC" was digitized with funding from the UNBC 25th Anniversary Project.
