Name of creator
In 1991, Alan Shiveral was the owner of a bicycle shop near Oppenheimer Park (Vancouver, B.C.). He was interested in creating a television program about cycling, as he believed cycling to have a positive transformational effect on peoples’ lives. He approached Ron Carver of the community station Vancouver East NTV, who in turn connected him with Vancouver television producer and writer Gordon Inglis. Together, Alan Shiveral and Gordon Inglis created “Free Wheelin’ with Alan Shiveral” as business partners (under no formal legal name). The arrangement of this business partnership continued 1991 to 1993, while the program aired on Vancouver East NTV.
In 1993, Shiveral and Inglis formalised their business partnership with the creation of Around the Bend Productions Ltd., with television producer and writer Jayne Akizuki.
Scope and content
Item is an unedited recording of a CBC television talk show pilot which features discussions with influential British Columbians, hosted by Charmaine Crooks. The first guest, artist George Littlechild, speaks about the artist's role in society; his past in foster homes and racism he experienced; his search for his own cultural identity; his Scottish and Plains Cree background; his art and inspirations; his spirituality; and his role models. The second guest, community activist and affordable housing advocate/developer Jim Green, speaks about his position as Community Development Co-ordinator for the Ministry of Employment and Investment and political positions as a means to an end; his upbringing in the southern United States; his efforts to prevent evictions in Vancouver's east end prior to the 1986 Expo; his run for mayor, and his accomplishments and vision for the future. The remainder of the tape captures Charmaine Crooks rehearsing and/or discarded takes, introduction and exit takes eventually used in the edited show, and voiceovers for video profiles.
No slate; occasional minor video dropout; several segments of black which separate different takes and/or segments.
