Drop-In (Series) (1970-1974)

Aka: Drop In

Drop-In was a general interest program for ten to fourteen year olds. Although the program was eclectic, shows usually concentrated on a specific theme, such as magic or love or changing fashions. The show explored such topics through in-studio interviews and filmed reports. Drop-In also included comic puppet sketches, called the Drop-In Little Theatre, and music by guest bands.

To develop the series, a pilot series entitled Dress Rehearsal was launched during the summer of 1970.

By the 1972 season, Drop-In's format expanded to include a selection of hosts from eight centres across the country. By the 1973 season, thirteen shows were shot on Canadian children's activities in France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, and the U.K.
