Encounter



Aired Sunday nights, for 8 weeks in the fall of 1960.

Nathan Cohen's Fighting Words took a short hiatus for a couple months and was replaced by this 30 minute talk show. Cohen was the host and many of his guests appeared on the panel show. This program offered more serious conversations about business, the arts, humanities, science etc. Guests included Marshall McLuhan, John Kenneth Galbraith, Stanley Kramer, James Baldwin, Karl Shapiro and Justice Samuel Freedman of the Manitoba Court of Appeal.
