Telescope (Series) (1963-1973)

Aka: Telescope Revisited; Telescope '71

This half-hour CBC documentary series covered a wide range of subjects, most of them pertaining to Canadians in Canada and around the world.

The mainstay of Telescope was the personality profile of a Canadian, whether a national figure, international celebrity, or a notable, unknown citizen. The show also included profiles of non-Canadians, such as writers Lawrence Durrell and Ray Bradbury and movie director John Huston.

Thirty programs from the 1965 to 1972 seasons were rebroadcast in 1983 weekday series titled Telescope Revisited.
