TV & Radio

David Suzuki's career in television began in 1962 when he appeared in eight programs in the University of Alberta series, Your University Speaks. His first nationally broadcast series was Suzuki on Science for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in 1968.

Since then he has been continuously engaged in the creation of ground-breaking television, radio and films that make science meaningful for ordinary people, and shed a bright light on our connection to the natural world.

David has earned many international awards and the highest honours in Canadian broadcasting, both for his performance as a communicator and for the excellence of the programs he has presented. It can safely be said that he is Canada's most prominent and popular spokesperson for science and the environment.
