Canadian School Telecasts (Series) (1954-1984)

Aka: National School Telecasts; Western Schools Telecasts; Television scolaire

Canadian Schools Telecast was an educational broadcast twice a week for half an hour during the school year. As well, regional stations often aired a local version, eg Manitoba School Telecast, Alberta School Telecast, Quebec Schools, Metro School Telecast (Toronto), etc in the same time slot for the remaining days of the week. It began as specific 15-minute broadcasts under strict guidelines from educational committees. School broadcasts were an effort by CBC to enlighten as well as entertain its audience. Conventional lessons were supplemented with more general broadcasts of literature, folk music and Canadian history.
