Children's International Newsreel (Series) (1957-1960)

The first "newsreel" for children on the CBC network was Children's International Newsreel, originating in Montreal. The 15-minute show was made up of segments procured from the news service of the European Broadcasting Union and presented without a host.

In December 1955, members of the European Broadcasting Union constructed a film exchange agreement. The participating countries included the U.K., France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Denmark, Finland, West Germany, Austria, and Canada, and their broadcasting organizations circulated two films, about five minutes in length, each month. The filmed features and news items formed the Children's International Newsreel.
