############ The Forest Rangers ##############
############## about the show ################
##############################################

 The Forest Rangers, a highly successful adventure series for children, was developed by executive producer Maxine Samuels
as an independent venture, with the cooperation of the CBC. By the time the show aired in Canada, it had already been sold
to networks in England, France, West Germany, and Australia, and by l966, over forty countries could watch the adventures
of a gang of resourceful Canadian young people who lived in northern Ontario.

The show took place in and around a village called Indian River, but the real focus of the story was an abandoned fort that
had been taken over by the Junior Rangers. The fort was their headquarters, where they set up their ham radio, and helped
keep watch for forest fires and other conservational offences. They ran up against not only poachers, but a succession of
thieves, escaped criminals, spies, and other wrongdoers. When discovered, one or more of the Junior Rangers might be tied up,
locked in a cellar, or otherwise held captive until they found a way out or were rescued by the government ranger or the R.C.M.P.
Although the program's stories were principally adventures, they sometimes had an educational slant. For example, the story might
have concerned poaching beaver pelts, but during the course of the show, viewers would see the part beavers play in the ecology
of the region.

The leader of the Junior Rangers was Peter Keeley, played by Rex Hagon, whose brother George Keeley, played by Graydon Gould,
was the Chief Forest Ranger for the area. (Hagon left the show after the first couple of seasons.) Ralph Endersby played Chub Stanley,
a city boy who moves to Indian River to live with foster parents, and is welcomed into the Junior Rangers. The other rangers
included Mike Forbes, played by Peter Tully, and Kathy, played by Susan Conway. Early in the series, Syme Jago appeared as Gaby LaRoche,
Paul Tully portrayed Ronnie, and Jesse (Ron) Cohoon played Zeke

Apart from George (the only adult relation to any of the young characters to appear in the show), other adult characters included
Uncle Raoul LaRoche, played by Rolland Bedard, Indian Joe Two Rivers, a guide played by Michael Zenon, and R.C.M.P. Sergeant Brian Scott,
portrayed by Gordon Pinsent. The dog was named Spike and the bear was Carol.The Forest Rangers was produced in colour, on film, and had
quite high production values. Maxine Samuels hired such producers as Ted Holliday and William Davidson, and attracted such people as
Paul Almond, George McCowan, Ronald Weyman, and George Gorman to direct individual episodes. Lindsay Galloway wrote most of the scripts
for the series.

The program was shot at Toronto International Studios at Kleinburg, Ontario, where the crew built bridges and a town street to represent
Indian River, and also found the abandoned fort (left over from the Hudson Bay television series) which they turned into Junior Rangers
headquarters. Initially, the CBC aired The Forest Rangers twice per week: once in its own thirty minute slot, and also in shorter, serialized
segments on Razzle Dazzle (where it bore a resemblance to an Australian adventure series for children, The Terrible Ten, also serialized
on the CBC show).

Maxine Samuels was the Executive Producer of the show which was in production between 1963 and 1965. In the early 60's she was looking
for an idea to sell to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation about children. Finally she just asked the CBC what they wanted: so they
told her they wanted an "outdoor adventure series for kids". That's when she came up with the premise for "The Forest Rangers".

Originally, it seems, there was already a plan in 1959 to do a show called "The Forest Ranger" . 20 scripts for this show had been
written by Ron Kenyon and Emile Harvard and local Toronto actors had been hired. There were even plans to bring in actors from Hollywood.
But, I can only assume that these plans fell through. That is until 1963 when Mrs Samuels brought her Junior Forest Rangers into the works.
According to The Daily Star 1964, "Mrs Samuels got the show on the road last year by selling the idea for the 1st 39-week series for
$680,000 to the CBC and Britain's ATV network, raised $325,00 from the bank." She had to borrow $1 million from the Bank of Montreal to
get things started.

The name of the production company was ASP and "The Forest Rangers" became the 1st Canadian made tv series in full colour. The CBC loved it.

The show was filmed just north of the village of Kleinburg located today in the City of Vaughan, at the Toronto International Studios.
There was a ranch on the grounds in those days called the Circle M Ranch.

Mrs Samuels crew quickly began building roads, bridges and Pan-Abode was brought in to put up the buildings around the mythical town of Indian River.
Luckily, they also found the remains of an old Hudson's Bay fort which was left over from the series of the same name. This would be the kids headquarters.
The main studio, however, was a large gray building on the grounds where all the indoor scenes were shot.  Maxine hired veteran English filmaker
Ted Holliday as the producer and he in turn hired all the directors (George McCowan and Paul Almond) ,cameramen, actors and film processors.
Lindsay Galloway was the main script writer and many of the ideas for the show came from authentic stories. Once filming began in early 1963 things
looked promising. The show was filmed at a torrid pace ( about one episode per 10 days). Usually two episodes were filmed simultaneously, and also
there were two film crews used -one in and around Kleinburg and one in Northern Ontario to get scenes for fires, fire towers, lakes and thick forest brush.

The kids were schooled right on the set in a dressing room complete with desks, blackboard, and of course a teacher. I can only assume that they
must have slept there  sometimes too.

To get special effects for forest fires and use of wild animals the Dept of Lands and Forests were recruited. They overlooked and managed the fires
which were often set offscreen and with smokebombs. However, it was noted that in real situations of forest fighting, the junior rangers would not
be involved. Mrs Samuels gave the kids special licence to take part in all the action though.

****** Sad News- Maxine Samuels passed away March 19th, 2001 in Montreal at the age of 79. Mrs. Samuels was dubbed 'The Iron Butterfly' by Time
Magazine and she will be sadly missed.
