This short-run summer program was based on the well-established public affairs program produced in Toronto. That series aired from 1963 to 1966 with Lloyd Robertson. The network picked up the show for the summer and aired some repeats while creating new content based on the social issues of the day. Each show was produced from a different region in Canada.

The program looked specifically at the generation gap between youth and adults. Subjects included employment, education, crime, and domestic affairs experienced by every teen. The last program even looked at young Doukhobors in British Columbia.

Producer: Claude Baikie

Hosts: Lloyd Robertson, June Callwood, Bill McVean and Katie Johnson on a rotating basis.
