Four variety programs produced in either Montreal or Toronto.

In 1963, the technique of simulcasting was new. This program was broadcast in English and in French, at the same time, on both networks of the CBC. The intention was to highlight artists from Montreal and Toronto.

The first program starred Shirley Harmer, Bill Cole, Lise LaSalle and Pierre Thriault with music by Lucio Agostini and choreography by Alan Lund. The second program was produced in Montreal, featuring Olivier Guimond, Roger Garciau, Jimmy Tapp, Paul Dupuis, Elaine Bedard, Richard Verrau, Yolande Guerarde and Fred Davis.

The last two shows, produced by Bob Jarvis and Gilles Fournier, featured Wayne and Shuster, Monique Leyrac, Paul Berval, and Denis Drouin.
