Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Not really a network show, the Canadian The Inventors was a "contributory" series a la ABC's Focus. Each of the series' 30-minute, filmed episodes was contributed by a different regional affiliate of the CBC. The network's Vancouver facilities served as home for the series, which per its title offered in-depth studies of celebrated Canadian inventors. The program was originally broadcast from September 15 to December 29, 1979.
