I'm not really a hockey fan, but this tiny Wayne Gretzky is pretty compelling.

I'd seen Malcolm x invterviews from the cbc before but never this appearance on front page challenge. That was such a good show, it was smart and funny and still a gameshow in its way and somehow they managed to bring in heavy hitters like this one with Malcolm X, Pearson after he won his nobel peace prize and even on with lyshenko, the man who helped start the cold war.

Really moved by the very early Joni. wow. She was sparkling with life. Radiant. A great archive of juicy video gems. Thanks.

Thanks, serazin. I have very fond memories of watching Take 30 after school in the basement in Halifax while my mom ironed. Paul Soles and Adrienne Clarkson hosted.

But the less said about Front Page Challenge the better.

Here's a great one: Trudeau on Trudeaumania.

I was living in Brockville Ontario at the time and noticed my mother one day wearing a groovy medallion on a chain. I remember thinking "why does she have a picture of a bald guy around her neck?". That was really the start of the 'sixties' for me--the first glimpse of hippie culture.

There is a send-up of Front Page Challenge on SCTV's brilliant Canada episode that never fails to make me laugh.
