CBC Television Network

Sunday At Nine

Network: CBC Television Network

Broadcast Run: 1969 to 1973

Broadcast Medium: Television

Aired Sunday nights from September 1969 to September 1973.

This time slot was given this somewhat banal title because a different type of program aired each week. Some weeks it was a comedy special from Wayne and Shuster or a drama, such as The Manipulators. Two BBC series made their North American debuts, Elizabeth R starring Glenda Jackson, and The Six Wives of Henry VIII, starring Keith Michell.

The schedule did allow for CBC productions under the supervision of Ronald Weyman. These were also known under the blanket title, Anthology.

Selected titles:

Black Phoenix, directed by Al Waxman from Martyn Burke’s and John Hunter’s script.

The Day They Killed The Snowman, directed by Peter Carter.

Twelve And A Half Cents, directed by Rene Bonniere.

The Mercenaries, also directed by Carter.

Firing Squad, an adaptation of a Colin McDougall story by Bruce Martin;

When The Bough Breaks, directed by Rene Bonniere from Nika Rylski’s script; Gold…Where You Find It, Maybe, by Leslie McFarlane, also directed by Bonniere.

The Golden Handshake, directed by Ronald Weyman.

Four Day Wonder, written by Bruce Martin, and Kalinsky’s Justice, by Grahame Woods, both directed by Bonniere;

The Fur Coat, by Bryan Barney, directed by John Trent; and Rodeo Rider and MacLeish’s Wild Horses, both written by Les Rose and Barry Pearson, the former directed by Grahame Woods and the latter by Ronald Weyman.
