CBC Television Network

Second Look, A

Network: CBC Television Network

Broadcast Run: 1964

Broadcast Medium: Television

Aired every other Sunday night at 10pm from January 26 to August 9, 1964.

Alternating with Horizon, this program replaced Let’s Face It. The show was a public affairs presentation, not unlike many of the news shows on CBC at that time. The show provided some interesting interviews: British MP Tony Benn, Media giant Roy Thomson, and American writer, Richard Rovere who talked about the Johnson administration.

The show collapsed under its own weight: a newspaper columnist with no television experience and a confused editorial direction. [See Horizon] Not to be confused with a series that ran in 1969.

Host: Gary Lautens

Producer: Barry Harris

Written by John Corcelli – May, 2005
