Scope and content

Series consists of video recordings of episodes from the “Ben Wicks” television show that aired on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) from 1979-1981. In the series, Ben Wicks interviews famous people, politicians and people with unique jobs. Each episode contains drawing lessons from Ben Wicks and two, two minute commercial breaks with a black screen. The interviews were conducted over several years in the mid to late nineteen seventies. The series also contains videocassettes for several of Wicks’s literacy projects, a recorded speech he made at an award function, and a brief recording of Mila Mulroney discussing the success of the Canadian Children’s Fund fundraising campaign and book, “Dear World.”
