The original plan for Five Years In the Life was to produce a series of half-hour documentary films on ten families from different areas of Canada, and then return five years later for a second look. Directors included Elie Savoie, David Pears, Jack Emack, Rene Bonniere, Elsa Franklin, Michael Rothery, Bill Harper, Jack O’Neil, Jack Long, Hugh Edmunds, Bill Bolt, Peter Kelly, and Paul Lynch. The series was produced by Michael Rothery (l968-7l), and by Nick Bakyta, with executive producer Peter Kelly (l97l-72). Music for the series was by Ben McPeek, with a theme song by singer/songwriter Bob Ruzicka.

Aired weekly at various times, during the summer, from 1968 to 1972.
