Canada was once a breeding ground for new, original, and beloved game shows, even some that reached audiences worldwide. Now, game shows produced in Canada are few and far between, and when they are made, they’re usually adaptations of shows created elsewhere in the world.

So what happened to Canada’s game shows? And will Canada one day return to being a creator of original and popular game shows in the numbers they once were? Only by retracing our history can these questions be answered, and our upcoming documentary series will blow the dust off of Canada’s historic game shows from the 90s, 80s, 70s and earlier.

This series will take a journey across Canada to find out more about these shows and their impact, and will feature interviews with the producers, hosts, and broadcasters who pioneered them. We will take a loving look back at some of the greatest moments from these game shows through the fond memories of the contestants.

But to do this, we need your help.
