For more than 40 years, CBC's award-winning investigative series the fifth estate has continued its tradition of offering viewers compelling in-depth stories, and fast-reaction investigations of ongoing events through unparalleled storytelling, production values and journalistic skill. On the digital front, the fifth estate is now watched by millions on YouTube (the documentaries about the plight of Amanda Todd, the B.C. teenager driven to suicide through Internet extortion and cyber-bullying, have been viewed more than 5 million times.) And the program also has the largest number of Facebook and Twitter followers among Canadian current affairs shows.
