Aired weekdays, at noon, in August of 1976.
This hour long talk show replaced The Bob McLean show for one month, after CBC’s coverage of the Montreal Olympics came to a close. It was hosted by Bob Switzer, long time broadcaster and interviewer based in Vancouver.
This show offered viewers the typical daytime fare, including regular guests to comment on particular subjects or demonstrate specific skills. For example, John Lindenlaub on outdoor cooking, yoga expert Phyllis Coleman, lawyer Peter Lenak, journalist Doug Collins, artist Bill Alexander, environmentalists Barry Leach and Mike Halleran, broadcaster Guy Bannerman, David Tarrant on botanical gardens, Uno Langman on antiques, and graphologist Hannah Smith.
