“The Search For Canada’s Game Shows” is a six-episode documentary series that takes you on a trip down memory lane featuring interviews with game show icons like Howie Mandel and Wink Martindale. You’ll learn how an American quiz show scandal became a boon to Canada’s game show industry, enjoy a look at the early careers of game show legends like Monty Hall and Alex Trebek, and get the behind-the-scenes stories of how some of Canada’s most inventive game shows like “The Mad Dash” and “Bumper Stumpers” came to be.

The series is also a hunt for game show footage thought lost to time. History has not been kind to some of Canada’s finest game show entries; due to the practice of wiping, some have been almost completely erased from the archives. However, we’ve dug deep to unearth classic footage from all of your favourite shows, including home video recordings from viewers like you!

“The Search for Canada’s Game Shows” is narrated by Wayne Cox, the host of fan favourites like “Acting Crazy,” “Talk About” and “Second Honeymoon.” Join us on January 16th at 7 PM for a special two-episode premiere!

It's so strange how a worked competition is can be seen as a bad thing. The point of a show is to entertain the audience, if building up big character stars is more entertaining than legitimate competition then why not? The only problem could be if there's betting involved and then only if the bookers are the bookies.

My dad and his business partner had a game show that made it to tv here in Canada – would have been in the sixties … something "staircase", maybe "pyramid". Jack Neuss was his name, and Ron Wild. I found this youtube channel trying to recall the name of it. Would be fun to learn more – didn't pay attention as a kid.

What an interesting video. It's amazing how Barry and Enright were able to redeem themselves. Also, it's interesting that the most prolific game show creators, Goodson and Todman only had ONE successful game show produced in Canada. (Beat the Clock)
