When television was young: primetime Canada 1952-1967

A decade after the 1st Canadian telecasts in September 1952, television had conquered the rustic. Why used to be the little reveal so enthusiastically welcomed via Canadians? was once tv in its early years extra cutting edge, much less commerical, and extra Canadian than present than present choices? during this learn of what's known as the 'golden age' of tv, Paul Rutherford has got down to dispel a few adored myths and to resurrect the reminiscence of a noble test within the making of Canadian culture.

He makes a speciality of 3 key facets of the tale. the 1st is the improvement of the nationwide carrier, together with the severe acclaim received by means of Radio-Canada, the struggles of the CBC's English carrier to supply mass leisure which could compete with the Hollywood product, and the powerful problem of personal tv to the full dream of public broadcasting.

The moment bargains with the wealth of made-in-Canada programming to be had to delight and tell vviewers - even ads obtain shut realization. Altogether, Rutherford argues, Canadian programming mirrored in addition to superior the present values and assumptions of the mainstream.

The ultimate concentration is on McLuhan's query: What occurs to society while a brand new medium of communications enters the image? Rutherford's findings forged doubt upon the typical presumptions concerning the remarkable strength of television.

Television in Canada, Rutherford concludes, quantities to a failed revolution. It by no means learned the ambbitions of its masters or the fears of its critics. Its direction was once formed not just through the desire of the govt., the facility of trade, and the empire of Hollywood, but in addition through the needs and behavior of the audience.

As time passes, it is probable that more people will know less about any particular photograph; and, as time passes, it will mean less to more people that the photograph was taken in 1864 rather than 1870, that it was taken in Dijon rather than Paris. The ambiguity of a photograph, as John Berger points out (Berger and Mohr, 1982: 85–92), derives less from the ‘planted’ presence of competing meanings, than from the discontinuity, the gap, between the moment of taking, and the moments of looking that stretch far forward into the photograph’s future.

But where is the home of the imagination, and of memory? It is the poet’s lamplit room and the draughtsman’s/painter’s studio: OU T OF THE STU DIO I NTO THE STREET And now, whilst others are sleeping, this man is leaning over his table, his steady gaze on a sheet of paper, exactly the same gaze as he directed just now at the things about him, brandishing his pencil, his pen, his brush, splashing water from the glass up to the ceiling, wiping his pen on his shirt, hurried, vigorous, active, as though he was afraid the images might escape him, quarrelsome though alone, and driving himself relentlessly on.

These movements are surreptitiously installed by the yataghan and its sheath on the left of the picture. So it is that we move from a domestic interior, half lounge half studio, to a street interior, the café, to which Léon increasingly belongs, where time is accelerated, where compositional instability OU T OF THE STU DIO I NTO THE STREET FIGU R E 10 Gustave Caillebotte, Nude on a Couch (1880–82) makes the scene pregnant with possible event, anecdote, and where the senses are very variously appealed to.
