72 Hours: True Crime was a television program that was broadcast by CBC Television and produced by Kensington Communications Creative Anarchy and Meech Grant Productions. It focused on crime, specifically on the first 72 hours after a crime is committed, a critical time period for solving it. Rather than focus on fictional crimes, as do Law & Order and other TV shows elsewhere, True Crime depicted actual crimes that occurred throughout Canada, using dramatic reenactments and documentary-style footage of crime scenes. The show was broadcast in high definition television. In 2007, CBC announced that 72 Hours was cancelled when it announced its new fall season .
