72 Hours: True Crime is a television program that is broadcast by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, or CBC. It focuses on crime, specifically on the first 72 hours after a crime is committed, which are very important in solving it. Rather than focus on fictional crimes, as do Law and Order and other TV shows elsewhere, True Crime depicts actual crimes that occurred throughout Canada, using dramatic reenactments and documentary-style footage of crime scenes. The show is broadcast in high definition television.
