Dateline (Series) (1955-1956)

Dateline was a series of half-hour, historical dramas on CBC.

Dateline boasted extensive research in the Public Archives and the aid of authorities in history from the Archives, the Royal Military College, the Canadian Army, and verification for accuracy in costume design. Nevertheless, the program used events of the past, principally the military past, to shore up dramas.

Like The Plouffe Family, the series was presented in both English and French language versions with the same cast. Dateline aired on English stations one week and French the next, and alternated with another program on each network (on the English stations, it alternated with The Wayne and Shuster Show).
