This short-lived series was a first attempt at daytime drama by the CBC. Unfortunately it suffered from stiff scripts and poor plot-lines. Nevertheless, the series did attempt to draw viewers on a daily basis with stories that were resolved week-to-week. It featured John Drainie and Ronald Cohoon in the lead roles. The producer was George McCowan with characters created by Robert and Kathleen Lindsay. The show had a sizeable budget and achieved syndication sales to the United States, but failed to continue.
