Canadian Anthology Series 1958-60   59 episodes x 30 min

CBC airdates: (season 1) (1958-59) (02Oct1958 - 02Apr1959) CBC Thu 8:30-9:00 p.m.,

 As the anthology drama format eroded in U.S. television, it was modified into series that had more unified approaches,
even though they might not follow the story of a single set of characters from week to week. The CBC anticipated the
example of "The Twilight Zone", which started in l959, with "The Unforeseen", which succeeded "On Camera" as the network's
half-hour weekly drama. As the title suggested, "The Unforeseen" presented suspense drama, or stories with a surprise
twist at the end, not necessarily futuristic narratives or tales of the supernatural.

Previously, the supervising producer of television drama oversaw the production of the half-hour drama,
but Peter Francis was delegated responsibility as executive producer of "The Unforeseen."
Although the thematic limits of the series were pretty loose, they strained the capabilities of the contemporary writers.
Administrator Hugh Gauntlett remarked, "...we found that by over- specializing the series it was difficult for us to get
scripts from our Canadian writers. We had a fair number of playwrights who could write a story involving a personal situation
with which they were familiar, but what we lacked was the sort of skilled craftsman who could be given this sort of assignment,
think for a few moments, and the come up with the sort of suspense story of mystery that the series demanded."
(Quoted, Roger Lee Jackson, "An Historical and Analytical Study...," l966)
Consequently, very few of the scripts were original stories by Canadian writers;
among the exceptions were Donald Jack and Peter Francis himself.
