Presenting Barry Morse (Series) (1960)

Actor Barry Morse filled ten minutes after the Sunday summer drama with a brief reading or disquisition on a subject of theatre history or technique. He discussed such topics as theatre's arrival in Canada, Gilbert's and Sullivan's partnership, acting in the Elizabethan era, Victorian melodrama, Charles Dickens as a "would-be actor" and the story of the man who shot Abraham Lincoln, presumably the story of another would-be actor, John Wilkes Booth.

Most often, Morse read alone, but sometimes he was joined by other Toronto actors.
