Other Voices (Series) (1964-1965)

Other Voices aimed to be controversial. The half-hour, public affairs program, which succeeded Horizon, had twelve-week runs in autumn 1964 and spring 1965. It purported to document people within society that television normally did not show. For one feature, for example, host Don Francks "infiltrated" groups of Mods and Rockers in the U.K., and for another, he lived for several weeks on a reservation near North Battleford, Saskatchewan. The program also presented a two-part inquiry into homosexuality, shot by CBC director Ron Kelly.

The format of the show also included interviews, music, satire, and dramatic productions.
