“This popular history of the shows, people and events that define the first half century of the network is told through the reminiscences, profiles and oral histories of more than a hundred on-air and behind-the-scenes personalities, including Norman Jewison, Robert Goulet, Don Harron, Juliette, Anne Murray, Norman Campbell, Don Chevrier, David Suzuki, Wendy Mesley, and Jonathan Torrens. Their stories are complemented by a wealth of archival photographs, memorabilia and illustrations – more than 350 in all, many previously unpublished. Both text and images provide snapshots of Canadian life past and present as viewed through the lenses of CBC-TV cameras filming docudramas, comedy shows, news programs, variety shows, children’s programs and sports events”. 002483 $20
