Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Co-produced by the CBC and Cineworld, Going Great was a Canadian magazine show aimed at kids and pre-teens. Hosted by actor Chris Makepeace, the series trafficked heavily in segments featuring "ordinary" people pursuing extraordinary jobs or hobbies, and also celebrity interviews. Ironically, two of the series' "reporters" would later become celebrities in their own right: Megan Follows and Keanu Reeves. The recipient of several industry awards, Going Great was syndicated throughout Canada from 1982 to 1985.
