On the Spot (Series) (1953-1954)

The first attempt by the National Film Board at film production for television, On the Spot was a series of documentaries on aspects of life in Canada. The series was originated by Bernard Devlin, who produced a parallel series, called Sur le vif, for the French language service. For the first season, the programs ran fifteen minutes on Tuesday evening, but the show expanded to fill a half-hour slot on Sunday nights.
