Second Look, A



Aired Sunday afternoons from January 5 to March 16, 1969.

One of the many popular programs on BBC was The Frost Report with David Frost. It was a mix of irreverent comedy and commentary based on topics usually lifted from the News. This 30-minute CBC program was modelled after the British show, and featured Terry David Mulligan and Bill Reiter, from radio.

Each week a specific subject was lampooned or satirized. The first show took a shot at man's infatuation with machines. Subsequent programs looked at doctors, transportation, communications and women. The show had a writing team and a comedy team, mostly based in Vancouver, where the show was produced.
