Scope and content

The collection consists primarily of radio broadcasts for 1977-1978, representing the period before Webster switched to broadcast television for his current affairs talk show. These broadcasts were recorded at both his Vancouver and his Victoria studio (Room 178 of the Empress Hotel). Also included are five (5) audio reels relating to interviews with Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau in 1972.

Also included are the original CJOR Webster Program log books for 1977-1978 and a small number of photos of Jack Webster and selected interviewees taken during these interviews.
