Tabloid (Series) (1953-1963)

Aka: 701; Seven-Oh-One

Tabloid was a half-hour specializing in interviews, chitchat among the staff and presented each night a surrealistic weather map by Percy Saltzman. In addition, the show included a newscast, sports, and a newsreel. It was the CBC's first magazine-type show.

Tabloid was retitled 701 for the 1963 summer season and the show was given a modified format and time.
