BAFFIN ISLAND - INTERVIEW WITH CABLE TV LICENSEE - APRIL 1987

Printer-friendly version

Back in Frobisher Bay (Iqaluit) on Baffin Island in April 1987, I did an interview with the local cable TV licensee, who also had opened the first video store in the area. This was a really enlightening discussion that revealed how the programming was received, what was involved in making it all legal, and what types of stations were carried. While hearing how things used to work is really fascinating, it's even more so when people back then start to reminisce about how it used to be even earlier.
