Name of creator
The Alliance of Canadian Television and Radio Artists (ACTRA) negotiates and administers collective agreements and sets minimum rates and basic conditions governing the English-language radio, television and film industry. ACTRA is composed of three guilds, and had its genesis in the Association of Radio Artists (1943), assuming the name Association of Canadian Television and Radio Artists in 1961. In 1984 ACTRA was reorganized and the first word in the title altered to 'Alliance'. The ACTRA Awards were first given in 1970 honouring Canadian writers, broadcast journalists and performers.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of television and film scripts considered for ACTRA Awards, 1980-1983. It includes scripts from the popular Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television programmes 'Seeing things,' 'For the record,' and 'The beachcombers,' as well as a National Film Board script, 'A choice of two,' (originally titled, 'Just above water,').
