Inquiry (Series) (1960-1964)

A contemporary to Close-Up and a direct precursor to This Hour Has Seven Days, Inquiry was a significant attempt by the CBC to inject bite and flair into its coverage of national affairs.

By the third season, the CBC had expanded the program's budget by a quarter and the show took on more responsibility for coverage of international events as well as national affairs.

Inquiry's attitude was pointed, did not shy away from controversy, and frequently included a satirical edge.
