Scope and content

Series consists of the text of speeches delivered by Knowlton Nash to a wide variety of audiences across Canada. The speeches focus on broadcast journalism and television news services, either in the general context of CBC programming, or tailored to reflect the content of a book written by Nash. Themes include the importance, standards, and ethics of journalism, its relationship with politics, and the role of television news reporting in developing a democratic society, a national identity, and national unity. Many of the speeches were arranged by CBC officials, in order to raise the profile of its news and information services and to develop connections between operations based in Toronto and Canadians at a local or regional level.
