CANADIAN TV
  • Differences in what TV should cover extend to the news;

In the 1960s US news appears to have two eras or relationship to federal government

Prior to satellite technology; rather seamless connection between federal government and news that aligns around several dramas: the space race; the rise of civil rights (and the alignment of federal government against state interests); war and the nuclear face off (Cuban Missile Crisis. Viet Nam)

Post satellite technology: Rise of antifederal news alignment: president encounters hostile media (this stays in place for quite sometime, really until George Bush W. era)

This binary does not work for analyzing the relationship of Canadian News Media in its early inceptions

This binary does not work for analyzing the relationship of Canadian News Media in its early inceptions,

Examples:

1955: CBC News Show called “Fighting Words” featuring drama critic Nathan Cohen, wide ranging discussions range from art to intellectual life of varied Canadians and Canadian cities. Leans into critical gaze at federal and provincial governments

1953-1995 Front Page Challenge; Where mystery guests give clues regards front page headline story, guess story and guest (now a similar popular show on US NPR) 1234

  • Differences in what TV should cover extend to the news;

Examples:

This Hour Has Seven Days: 1964 to 1966. Hosts include Pierre Trudeau, acclaimed documentary producer Harry Rasky, John Drainie, Laurier LaPierre and Carole Simpson Simpson was soon replaced by Dinah Christie. Not just controversial subjects, but controversial coverage of subjects:

Creators: Patrick Watson and Douglas Leiterman

“more stimulating and boundary-pushing brand of television journalism. CBC executives believed the show went beyond the limits of journalistic ethics and cancelled the show, leading to allegations of political interference. Many elements of this show inspired the tabloid talk show genre in later decades.” Patrick Watson as quoted in “Here’s Looking at Us” Celebrating 50 years of CBC programming.

Example 1, Example 2, Example 3

Example 5: Airing of Burning in Mississipi by famed Canadian Documentarian Beryl Fox, Moment from a key participant: Eric. Koch

the canadian formula
The Canadian Formula?

“To make matters more complicated, Canadian series often function differently in US Broadcasting than they do in Canada, Early visions of Canadian television emphasize the need for an alternative to the perceived commercialism of U.S. television. In addition to developing a differentiated private-public broadcast structure, Canada self differentiated from the US through a preference for documentary and educational realism. The supposed authenticity, usefulness and truth telling capacities of Canadian television Have transferred into youth programs and account for the appeal of such shows like Degrassi in the US”
