Royce Frith, later Senator Frith, hosted this half-hour program that introduced viewers to up-and-coming Canadians from all walks of life. Among the many guests to be featured were Peter Lougheed and Sinclair Stevens, which suggests that the producers weren’t bad judges of their subjects’ potential.

The program was shot on film both in Toronto and at various CTV affiliates round the country. It made its debut in the fall of 1966 on Mondays at 10:30pm and ran for one season.
