Making Ends Meet (Series) (1962)

This CBC series of 7 half-hour programs outlined problems in family finances. After an introductory show, called Making Ends Meet: How Do We?, the remaining programs each concentrated on a different way of spending or using money: Food, Homes, Appliances; Clothes; Cars; and Money in the Bank. The programs used three urban couples as examples of possibilities for family budgeting. At a time when the annual average income was $5,000, Nancy and Jim earned under $4,000 annually, Sandra and Harold had an income of between $6,000 and $7,000, and Kay and Gordon earned just over $10,000. The shows included documentary material and discussion by experts on the subject at hand.
