Fractured Phrases (Series) (1965-1967)

This weekday afternoon series allowed contestants in the studio to play a word game called Fractured Phrases. Jim Perry was the host of the show for the first season when the show was produced in Montreal. The second season was produced in Ottawa and hosted by Les Lye.

The purpose of the game was to phonetically decipher common phrases or names from the given clue. A contestant from one team would read the clue to his or her partner and the partner had 15 seconds to come up with the correct answer. For example, the correct answer to the clue "Egg, no, rinses, blitz" would be "Ignorance is bliss."
