Hidden Pages (Series) (1954-1959)

Hidden Pages
The first regular dramatic presentation for children produced in CBC studios was Hidden Pages, with Beth Gillanders as hostess.

Hidden Pages started as a fifteen minute broadcast from Toronto, later expanded into a half-hour, and, from 1956, originated in Vancouver. The program was developed as a means of encouraging children to read and to use the public libraries. The program featured books for both younger and older children. Beth Gillanders introduced a book about a particular subject, and her introduction was followed by a dramatization of a scene from the book. Gillanders then explained how the book could be obtained from the public library and made suggestions about further reading on the topic of the day.
