A Canadian record for the world's deepest live radio broadcast may soon appear in the Guinness World Records book.

The necessary documentation has been sent to a Guinness adjudicator in London after CBC Sudbury completed a live broadcast from more than two kilometres underground Tuesday.

Points North, CBC Sudbury's afternoon radio show, broadcast from Inco's Creighton mine Tuesday. It took host Dan Lessard and others nearly 40 minutes to reach their destination: the broadcast was conducted from the part of the mine known as "the deep" – located underground at a depth of about four times the height of Toronto's CN Tower.
