    The Beachcombers holds the record for being the longest running television series in Canadian history - 19 years. It has appeared in 31 countries and 5 languages. A Special Note Concerning the Name of Relic's Boat:From time to time, I get emails from people inquiring about various aspects of the show - and I thank you folks for your interest. By far, the most common question is "What was the name of Relic's boat?" This question comes up so often, that I have decided to post the answer here. Relic's boat did not have a name. In the scripts for the show, it was only ever referred to as "the jet-boat" or simply "Relic's boat". Relic's dilapidated houseboat did have a name ("Chuck-Chee" - derived from a local BC native language. I am not sure what the "Chee" portion of it means...but "Chuck" means "water"). People often mistake the houseboat's name for that of the jet-boat. But, the truth is: Relic's boat never had a name.moreless

    CBC (ended 1986)
    How many times have you asked your friend have you ever seen The Kids of Degrassi Street? Most likely they didn't know what it was. During the first few months for the series it did not do good in ratings, but got better. This show starred many characters that all went to the same school, right next to the Degrassi Grocery. Everyone knew everyone in the little town. This show dealt with many issues in teen and pre-teens life.

    After the show was done airing most of the actors went on to the other series Degrassi Junior High, they just had different names. There were many rumors as the show went on that someof the cast had to re-audition for Degrassi High. Those were never confirmed.

    The Kids of Degrassi Street was filmed 1979-1985 around Degrassi Street and Queen Street East in Toronto, Canada. The show has sadly been canceled. If you like this show you should watch the new series Degrassi: The Next Generation.moreless

    CBC
    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

    CBC (ended 1978)
    Welcome to the Side Street guide at TV Tome.There is no editor for this show. If you would like to be the editor look here for details. Stories of detectives dealing with petty crimes rather than murders and the like usually featured in such shows. Side Street succeeded The Collaborators as the CBC's main series drama. The Collaborators had moved away from its original premise based on the combined work of police and forensic scientists to become a more conventional cop show. Program developers John Saxton and Geoffrey Gilbert aimed to move Side Street away from the violence of the typical police show with protagonists who were community service officers instead of ordinary detectives. They aimed to concentrate on issues such as blockbusting, strikebreaking, rape, poverty, and the problems of the elderly in the city, instead of major crimes.
