Come Fly with Me (Series) (1958)

Come Fly with Me
Shane Rimmer starred in Come Fly With Me, a musical variety show that replaced Front Page Challenge in the summer of 1958. The program was produced in European, U.S., and Canadian cities. At around the same time, the CBC sent Nathan Cohen and Fighting Words to the U.K., and opened its trans-Canada microwave network, all representing a kind of expansion of activity for CBC television. Come Fly With Me also featured the Don Wright Singers and the Rudy Toth orchestra. Programs originated in Paris, Rome, Edinburgh, New York, Niagara Falls, Vancouver, Banff, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. Jim Guthro was the producer.
