    Jake Doyle and his father Malachy run a private investigations agency in St. John's, Newfoundland. Their cases involve them in all sorts of dealings, not all of them on the right side of the law. Complicating matters on the personal front is Nikki, Jake's soon-to-be ex-wife; she is just one of the many women that Jake can't seem to stay away from. Another complication is the sexy, new police constable in town, Leslie Bennett, with whom Jake has an on-again, off-again relationship. Malachy's life should be running smoothly, as his live-in love, Rose, helps out at home and at the office, but Rose has secrets of her own that she's keeping. Malachy's grand-daughter, Tinny, also lives at home, and her teenage rebelliousness wrecks havoc on everyone, but she also proves surprisingly helpful with investigations. Rounding out the crew is Des Courtenay, a local tagger who started out as a thorn in Jake's side but ends up being a valuable aide in the business. After a successful first season, the second season began filming in St. John's on July 5, 2010.

    CBC
    Summary: The adventures of a beloved elephant king and his family come to life in this delightful animated series based on the children's books by Jean and Laurent de Brunhoff. Living in a huge mansion with his whole family of elephants, Babar has entertained over millions of toddlers, and even older children nation-wide.

    Throughout the Years: Babar made his debut in "The Story of Babar" published in 1931 by Jean de Brunhoff. Jean created and illustrated seven Babar titles before dying in 1937. Laurent de Brunhoff, son of Jean, continues his father's work and is still writing Babar books. In the year, 2006, Babar will celebrate being King of The Elephants for 75 years!

    Production: 78 episodes are broadcast in 30 languages in over 150 countries, making Babar one of the largest distributed animation shows in history. With over 100 licensees worldwide, the Babar brand has a multi-generational following. There are even 12 dedicated Babar stores in Japan. A global cultural phenomenon, whose fans span generations, Babar stands along side Mickey as one of the most recognized children's characters in the world. There are now over 30,000 Babar publications in over 17 languages, and over 8 million books have been sold. Laurent de Brunhoff's Babar's Yoga for Elephants is a top seller in the U.S with over 100,000 copies sold to date. The Babar series of books are recommended reading on First Lady Laura Bush's national reading initiative list. Babar has been a perennial favorite for years at the White House Easter Egg Roll. Babar currently airs on television today on the HBO, FAMILY channel, and Treehouse. There are also 2, or more, videos with Babar in it but those two have gone out-of-print.

    Characters: BABAR: King Babar is a charming and charismatic elephant. He brought his love of the city back to the great forest and built the beautiful, happy kingdom of Celesteville. Though he is a dedicated ruler and world traveller, Babar is happiest when picnicking at the lake with his family or joining in the antics of his lively children.

    CELESTE: Queen Celeste has also travelled the world and has had many great adventures. She has a regal presence, an engaging manner and a gentle sense of humour. The children adore their mother. After an active day with the family and governing the kingdom, Babar and Celeste enjoy watching the stars together from the palace veranda.

    OLD LADY/ MADAME: From their first meeting in the city, the Old Lady and Babar shared a special friendship. She gave him a home and taught him about life in the city. Though she misses him greatly, she understood his decision to return to the forest. Babar built her a home in Celesteville, where she made the decision to stay and live with her friends, the elephants.

    FLORA: Flora is fun-loving and strong-willed. She can more than hold her own with her two brothers. Whether building tree houses, sliding down the banister at the palace, or preparing a surprise breakfast for their parents, Flora is always immersed in the action.

    ISABELLE: Isabelle was an amazing baby, walking early, talking early, even roller blading! Anything to keep up with the triplets. Pom, Flora and Alexander are enchanted with their little sister. Everyone in the kingdom admires Isabelle's independent spirit.

    CORNELIUS: Cornelius, the oldest and wisest elephant in Celesteville, takes his job as Babar's chief advisor very seriously, whether accompanying Babar on state visits or organizing numerous Celesteville parades. When not working, Cornelius can often be found relaxing in a field with a butterfly net.

    ARTHUR: Arthur is Babar's mischief-making cousin. He has an engaging smile, bright eyes and a friendly outgoing He often gets himself (and one or more of the children) involved with practical jokes and crazy stunts. He has nerves of steel and a heart of gold!

    POM: Pom is the leader of the children. He is the biggest of the bunch and protective of his brother and sisters though he will gladly join in with Alexander in playfully teasing his sisters, Flora and Isabelle.

    ALEXANDER: Alexander, the smallest of the triplets, is a non-stop ball of entertainment who is into everything and disarmingly naive about the commotion he causes.

    ZEPHIR: Zephir is one of Babar's oldest friends, and is considered one of the family. He is the first to take off with Arthur and the kids on some crazy adventure. But Babar knows that Zephir can always be trusted to look after the children and bring them home safely.moreless

    The Red Green Show

    The Red Green Show

    Follow
    CBC (ended 2006)
    During his days of stage touring with his wife, and on the briefly-lived sketch comedy they performed him, Steve Smith created the rough draft for a character: The embodiment of the male ego. He named the character Red Green, after Canadian hunter and fisherman, Red Fisher, and usually appeared in a cluttered room, wearing a rubber duck on his hat, sitting on a picnic table, and speaking in a somewhat throaty voice. He would comment on countless stereotypical Canadian activities and incorporate them into the stereotypical male activities. The character proved popular with audiences. In 1991, CHCH, a television network in Hamilton, offered him an opportunity for a series. Smith decided to take the offer, but concluded that if this show flopped, he would leave television altogether (he had previous efforts, such as his role as the father of his real sons, "Me and Max", his sons Max and Dave playing themselves and Morag playing the wife/mother, as well as multiple roles; among them was Steve's character "Uncle Red). He collaborated with his friend, Rick Green, about it. They decided to make a show about "being outdoors", when it occurred to them Red Green was just such a character. With a little character fleshing and a backdrop, this show just might make it. Rick would direct, Steve would write, and they would both produce. And who would Rick play? A certain character he had performed on radio and television named Bill, a wacky, slapstick character, almost a living cartoon who never stopped talking. As a twist, on the show, his voice was almost never heard. He only appeared in black and white segments titled "Adventures with Bill." And his last name? In a moment of irony- Smith. The "plot" (or lack thereof) was that Red Green was the leader of Possum Lodge, a men-only resort where they could generally goof off and be themselves. They were veritable stereotypes, yet with a certain flair and charm, which added to their wit. Red was the only remotely sensible one, but perhaps not much more competent. He was a true craftsman, and had a portion called "Handyman Corner" where he would take ordinary objects and, with the help of power tools and duct tape, would turn them into a unique variation of something already established. Rarely did they work. He also had countless monolouges where he would talk to "all you middle-aged" viewers. Among the regular residents at the Lodge were Dalton Humphries (Bob Bainborough), the owner of "Humphries's Everything Store" and possessor of the worst marriage and family imaginable. Another was Winston Rothschild III (Jeff Lumbly), a friendly, inherited millionaire who ran a septic sewage sucking company. Mike Hamar (Wayne Robson) was the neurotic former criminal on parole, and Hap Shaunnesy (Gordon Pinsent) was the aging riverboat owner, who reminsced about wild, unbelievable adventures. Bob Stuyvesant (Bruce Hunter) was a golf-playing, multiply-married Natural Resources inspector, and Buzz Sherwood (Peter Wildman) was a wild pilot who was still a hippie. Garth Harble (Derek McGrath) was the local nature specialist, and Dougie Franklin (Ian Thomas) was the Southern American, owner of the world's largest trucks. There were also recurring roles, such as Aboriginal actor Graham Greene as explosives "expert" Edgar K.B. Montrose and Peter Keleghan as Ranger Gord, who started the series living in a fire-watch tower, deprived of human relationship. It was the general incompetence and helplessness of the overweight beer-drinkers that made up most of the humour, coupled with Red's dry wit. The show didn't originally have great ratings and was eventually cancelled after three seasons. Fortunately, however, Global picked it up in 1994, re-naming it "The New Red Green Show", raising the budget, and adding a new, completely unique star: Red's nephew, geeky city boy Harold, played by television star and Second City alumnus Patrick McKenna. He wore a large, guitar-like video device which he used to remotely control the cameras. Red generally traded barbs with Harold, but kept him because he needed his technological skills to produce the show. Harold was generally unliked by the other lodge members, and wasn't very attractive, either: He wore glasses and a retainer, had a nasal, high-pitched voice, and generally looked awkward. The Global run brought two elements to The New Red Green Show that proved valuable vehicles for McKenna's Harold character. One was the "Possum Lodge Word Game," a send-up of Bob Stewart's Pyramid, begun in 1995 and still in practice. Harold emceed as Red and a fellow lodge member competed for cheap prizes. (Usually Red gave the clues and people such as Dalton or Mike would make nowhere near the correct guess.) The shorter-lived fixture, first seen in 1996, was "Men Anonymous," in which lodge members talked of how they tried to act less like men. While "Men Anonymous" didn't last, Red and the others did hold on to that group's "Man's Prayer": I'm a man, But I can change If I have to, I guess. The 1996 season was notable as well for the absences of Edgar Montrose and Ranger Gord. (At the time, Peter Keleghan was starting The Newsroom for the CBC). Global aired "The New Red Green Show" until 1997, when the series was axed and sold to CBC for a hefty price. On CBC, its title was restored to "The Red Green Show" and many aspects of the original program were restored. One new element was Red's fix-it segment called "If It Ain't Broke, You're Not Trying," where lodge members would bring broken items and Red would usually apply duct tape somewhere. However, in the ensuing two years some drastic changes were made. Rick Green left to devote his time and energy to his cable-based sketch comedy/satire "History Bites" (in which Bainborough is a regular performer), Derek McGrath left to perform in "Doc" and Pat McKenna also departed to spend more playing the maniacal oppressor Marty Stephens on the Toronto stock market drama "Traders", and with them their characters vanished. Replacing Bill was ambitious youth Walter (Joel Harris), who wasn't quite as manic as Bill. His black-and-white bits introduced a gimmick rarely seen on "Adventures With Bill": Regular characters (besides Red) frequently appeared sharing Walter's escapades. Once McGrath parted paths with the show, a new animal control officer was needed. By the end of the 1998 season, Jerry Schaefer joined the cast as a more regular character than McGrath was, in the form of paranoid Ed Frid, who adapted Harble's gimmick of holding a wild animal in a bag, but instead of being ignorantly confident, he was constantly worried about them and would always make up a wild half-truth about their destructive abilities. Harold, however, who had found urban employment and moved to the city, would occasionally guest star, either visiting his beloved cousin or or vice versa (if Red were to visit Harold it would usually involve some legal or technological situation). That same year also featured Mike's Teen Talk and the first year for Ranger Gord's animated Educational Features. Things changed yet again for the 11th year of The New Red Green Show because Harold returned full time and has been a regular ever since. The show also finally saw a replacement for Glen Brackston as Dwight Cardif became the show's Marina Operator. The 13th Year saw a welcome surprise as Bill rejoined the show for six Adventure Segments. Another recent feature is Talking Animals with Ed Frid and the return of Ranger Gord's Animated Shorts for the 5th year. The New Red Green Show has been running on PBS since 1995, airing all the Global and CBC shows. Only in the highlight special "We Can't Help It, We're Men" did PBS audiences see clips of the CHCH days. "Remember, I'm pulling for you. We're all in this together." "Keep your stick on the ice!"moreless

    TOM STONE is the story of a Calgary ex-cop, ex-rig worker and ex-con who gets recruited to work undercover for RCMP Corporal Marina Di Luzio, a commercial crime specialist from Toronto. Between them, they go places that Marina's official counterparts can't, catching the bad guys who usually get away -- criminals with influence and money: the ones who consider themselves above the law. While Tom is happy to be out of jail, he's not so happy under Marina's controlling thumb. And sometimes undercover life deals out a rougher hand than even Tom bargained for. He wants out. And he wants his family land back. He needs money, and he needs to stay out of jail. Unfortunately, to accomplish these two objectives he needs Marina. And Marina needs Tom -- as much as she hates to admit it. She's got confidence, attitude and smarts but she's stuck in Calgary, and the only way out is gaining recognition for solving the high profile cases the city seems to attract. But she's frustrated because no one seems to be cooperating with her desperate agenda to get out of Cowtown. Jack Welsh wants to help them both. Especially if it helps him. And as it turns out, keeping the duo together and working in Commercial Crime in Calgary keeps him on the inside track when it comes to other people's money. And it's always about other people's money for Jack. Though Jack's far from a diplomat, once in awhile his larcenous skill set comes in handy, if there's something in it for him. While Tom and Marina battle each other, Calgary's RCMP Commercial Crime unit is in a whole different kind of physical and emotional turmoil. They've just moved to new offices and nervously await the arrival of their new Officer in Charge. Their worst fears are confirmed when Inspector Alexandra Black strides in and announces her bone-chilling plan to get rid of the deadwood and turn the unit into "a successful and functioning department of the RCMP." Alexandra keeps Sergeant Grant Davidson and unit clerk Amy Matuziak, scrambling as she threatens to send them both to the hinterlands. Their sense of impending doom creates some strange alliances throughout the course of the season ahead.moreless

    Hetty and Alec's younger sister Olivia is a single woman trying to make a career in the world of journalism and falls in love with Jasper, a local inventor.

    Felicity has many ideals, but when Gus arrives in Avonlea he isn't exactly what she is looking for, but he is determined that she is the girl for him.

    Following their success with "Anne of Green Gables," the talented duo of Kevin Sullivan and Trudy Grant set their eyes toward a television series, based on one of Lucy Maud Montgomery's favorite characters, Sara Stanley, The Story Girl.

    Using tales from the books, "The Story Girl," "The Golden Road," "The Chronicles of Avonlea" and "The Further of Chronicles of Avonlea," Sullivan Entertainment created a heartwarming family c TV series. Set against the stunning backdrop of Prince Edward Island, Canada, Road to Avonlea follows the adventures of the King family and the residents in the quaint town of Avonlea at the turn of the 20th century.

    Road to Avonlea first aired in 1990 on Canada's CBC. It was soon picked up by America's Disney Channel, who re-named it "Avonlea." The series ran for seven seasons until 1996, a total of 91 - 1 hour episodes. Since the series end, Sullivan Entertainment has filmed a special reunion movie in 1998, "Happy Christmas Miss King" with many of our favorite Avonlea family members.

    One of the staples of the CBC during the mid to late eighties, Danger Bay was a half hour-long family adventure series set in and around the city of Vancouver. It was co-produced by the Disney Channel, where it aired in the United States. The cast was led by veteran Canadian actor Donnelly Rhodes, who played Doctor Grant "Doc" Roberts, a veteranarian employed by the Vancouver Aquarium. Other primary cast members included Christopher Crabb and Ocean Hellman as Grant's children, Jonah and Nicole, and Hagan Beggs as Doctor George Dunbar, head of the Aquarium. In the initial seasons, Deborah Wakeham starred as Joyce Carter, a pilot who often contributed her skills to the Aquarium's projects and expeditions, although she left to be replaced by Susan Walden. Walden's character, J.L., wed Grant during the show's fifth season. Rounding out the cast was Michele B. Chan as Doctor Donna Chen, Grant's assistant for the first three seasons. As the show's popularity increased, so did the number of well-known actors appearing in guest shots. The show was often educational and tended to focus on ecological issues like pollution, deforestation, poaching, and other issues vital to the safety and well being of animal life. Storylines typically followed the Roberts family confronting these environmental threats. The Vancouver Aquarium, nearby coastal waters, and vast British Columbian forests supplied a rich and exotic backdrop to the family's adventures. The series endured for six seasons until 1990.moreless

    Sharon, Lois & Bram, a popular kid-song singing trio got their own show in 1984 after 6 years of making music albums for children. The show was about Sharon,Lois and Bram, three people who lived with Elephant (who was assumed to be male although his role was performed by a woman in an elephant costume) who never spoke but provided slapstick comedy and laughs. They usually had friends (children) at their house and would sing with them and do various activities each episode. The show also frequently featured concert clips of Sharon,Lois & Bram, and many guest stars. Some episodes taught values or morals and some were just based around the lovable character Elephant. The show ran with new episodes from 1984 till 1988. It didn't produce new episodes in 1985, but had 2 seasons in 1986. The series produced 65 episodes. In the first years of its running it was shown in Canada. Nickelodeon's Nick Jr. picked up the series in the late eighties and reran it in reruns till circa 1996. By then Blue's Clues, Gullah Gullah Island, and other Nick Jr. shows were pushing it off the lineup. In 1997 a follow up show called Skinnamarink TV premiered. It was altered from the first series to include a talking 7-year-old girl elephant named Ella Accapella, and C.C. CopyCat, a teen-aged cat character. The show ended in 1998 after 2 seasons with a total of 52 episodes. Lois's husband's died shortly after - she has since left the traveling trio but still records with the group. In 2002, the three were named members of the Order of Canada. Currently, Bram & Sharon tour and sing under the title "Sharon,Bram & Friends". Sharon,Lois & Bram paved the way for a new generation of children's TV and music, and created their trademark song Skinnamarink which they are probably best known for.moreless

    Hockey Night In Canada has been a national institution in Canada since 1952, when Foster Hewitt's familiar "Hello, Canada!" ushered hockey fans into the era of television. The first NHL game to be televised on Canadian Broadcasting Company was a game in Montreal on Oct. 11, 1952 and the first Finals in 1953, which were broadcast in French on CBC Radio-Canada only in Quebec, perhaps only in the Montreal area. Rene Lecavalier was the play-by-play man and only the three games in Montreal were televised. English language telecasts began in 1954 with Danny Gallivan at the microphone. Danny was followed by Bill Hewitt and Bob Cole were the primary play-by-play announcers through the 2008 Finals. Beginning in 2009, Jim Hughson took over the play-by-play duties with Craig Simpson alongside for color commentary.

    The Finals telecasts have been hosted by Ron McLean since 1987. He also hosts the popular Coach's Corner with the outspoken Don Cherry.moreless
