Product Description

About the Author

Peter Kenter grew up in Toronto, Ontario, bathed in the indifferent glow of a 24-inch black and white television set. Relocated at age eleven to the rural farming community of Dorchester, television provided him with a cultural lifeline until he could return to civilization.

In high school, Peter and a friend launched a miniature publishing empire, selling newspapers to fellow students including six issues of The Sir Cedric Times (celebrating the virtues of British actor Sir Cedric Hardwicke). Since completing a degree in journalism at Ryerson Polytechnical University, Peter has worked at Southam Inc., and has written for such publications as Toronto Life, Canadian Business, Report on Business and Cottage Life.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Dad Loved It Feb. 10 2014
By Gs - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was a gift for my father Norman Sedawie who worked for CBC in the early days of Canadian television. He found the book to be full of useful information as well as a great reference tool. I recommend this book for anyone interested in this subject.
5.0 out of 5 stars Very Comprehensive Book On Canadian Television July 31 2012
By SimpsonsFan99 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I had purchased this book, TV North, in the earlier part of the 2000s before having to sell it along with my other possessions due to serious economic hardship. It was the most comprehensive book I had ever read on every television program that ever aired north of the border. It is a must-read for any American who is curious about Canadian culture; I wish this book would be updated to include listings such as Corner Gas and other successful programs that have aired on CTV and the other Canadian networks since 2000.
