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.
