The Fifth Estate

For four decades the fifth estate has been Canada's premier investigative documentary program. Hosts Bob McKeown, Gillian Findlay and Mark Kelley continue the tradition of provocative and fearless journalism which began with Adrienne Clarkson, Warner Troyer and Peter Reilly in 1975.

Each week the fifth estate brings in-depth investigations that matter to Canadians – delivering a dazzling parade of political leaders, controversial characters and ordinary people whose lives were touched by triumph or tragedy.

In 2014, the fifth estate won an International Emmy® Award for its investigation into the Rana Plaza collapse in Bangladesh, titled Made in Bangladesh. For the third year in a row, the fifth estate was named Canada's Best News Information Series at the Canadian Screen Awards.
