Children's Friday Specials (Series) (1976-1977)

The CBC's department of children's television commissioned four half-hour film documentaries for and about children from different regions of Canada. Rodeo Boy, produced and directed by Jack Emack of Edmonton, dealt with a teenager who decided to become a professional rodeo cowboy. Sandy Lumsden, of CBC Halifax, produced a film about children who live in a lighthouse on Mosher Island, off Nova Scotia. Maple Syrup, produced by John Thorne of Montreal, concerned children who live on a farm in Quebec's Eastern Townships. Ray Hazzan, of Toronto, constructed a film based on children's ideas on Canada.
