9B (Series) (1986; 1989)

In this 1986 CBC TV movie, Robert Wisden starred as high school teacher Bob Dawson and his class of hostile anti-social students who he decides to enter in a drama festival competition. The story was based on the experiences of Don Hunter and the real classroom 9B of '68, a class made up of all the so-called "problem students" in a northern B.C. school. Hunter acted as an adviser on the TV movie's screenplay.

In early 1989, a 5-episode weekly series debuted on CBC based on the 9B movie. The series followed Bob Dawson and the antics of his often unruly charges.
