In order to commemorate the successes of our national teams at the Salt Lake City Olympic winter games in 2002, Riche Lieu Productions will launch, on March 11th, a two (2) DVD Box Set featuring the full, original CBC/Radio-Canada broadcasts of the men's and women's gold medal games. These games took place Feb 21st & 24th, 2002 and are complete with medal ceremonies. Broadcast of the Men's Gold Medal game shattered the previous record of viewers for a Canadian television broadcast, reaching over 10 million people.

Capture the excitement! Relive the unexpected but inspirational moments when the women's team won against their rivals, "The Americans". With their victory, the men's team, hand picked by the great one, Wayne Gretzky put an end to the 50-year wait for a gold medal in hockey.

The two Canadian gold medal teams were chosen "Sport Team of The Year 2002" in a poll taken by the Canadian Press and NTR.

Both matches are available in French & English on the same DVD with more than 8 hours of original CBC/RADIO CANADA material.

This box set, entirely bilingual, also comes with a 10" x 14" colour poster of each team.

A national media campaign will be launched on March 8th. "Hockey 2002" will be available on March 11th at all major retailers from coast to coast

This DVD was made possible in collaboration with the International Olympic Committee, The Canadian Hockey Association and CBC/ Radio Canada Television. One dollar ($1) from each DVD sold goes to the Canadian Hockey Association to help support amateur hockey in this country.
