Brand New Scene

Network: CTV Television Network

Broadcast Run: 1966 to 1967

Broadcast Medium: Television

When producer Syd Banks moved his half-hour country music show, Let’s Sing Out, from CTV to the CBC, at the start of the 1966-67 season, he persuaded CTV to take another Banks half-hour variety show as a replacement. Brand New Scene was hosted by Oscar Brand with a back-up group, sometimes with guest artists, sometimes with just Oscar singing to an audience. It was produced in Toronto, and ran for one season, 1966-67, on Sundays at 5:30pm.
