It all started with a bald puppet called Uncle Chichimus, broadcast
from fledgling CBC English Television on Monday, September 8, 1952,
at 7:15 p.m.
Fifty years later, CBC Television marked the anniversary of this
first broadcast with an incredible variety of celebrations on air,
online, and in your community.
From September 6 through October 10, CBC-TV brought you special
programming to celebrate this significant anniversary. And the celebrations
will continue with special features and highlights - right through
the regular programming season.
