Scope and content
The fonds consists of 271 audio tape reels, mainly containing CBC radio programs produced by Norman Newton. It includes three main types of recordings.
The first, and most numerous (T4365:0001-0200), are musical recordings of (mainly) Vancouver artists in concert, and of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra (1983-1985), conducted by Kazuyoshi Akiyama, Rudolf Barshai, and various guest conductors. These performances were broadcast on such CBC programs as "Arts National", "Mostly Music", "Orgainists in Recital", "Pacific Soundscape", "Tapyak-tama", and "Two New Hours".
The second group (T4365:0201-0242) comprises radio dramas and documentaries produced by Newton between 1966 and the late 1970s. These were heard on series such as "Audience" and "CBC Stage".
The third group (T4365:0243-0271) consists of recorded material relating to the culture and music of the First Nations of the Pacific Northwest Coast. It includes unedited material recorded in May 1968 at Alert Bay, B.C., featuring interviews about the potlatch with Kwakiutl people from Alert Bay and Fort Rupert, plus a public performance of Kwakiutl songs and dances. This group also includes the 1964 radio program "Music of the Native Peoples of B.C." and some programs from 1965: "Alert Bay Indian Songs & Dances" and the six-part series "The Indian as Artist".
