Scope and content

Item is a documentary film documenting The Morning Show's coverage of visits to Stanley Park and Queen Elizabeth Park with interviewer Ross Mortimer and host Doug Campbell. The program was aired on CBUT (Channel 2) in 1963 and contains footage of Ross Mortimer's interview in Stanley Park with Stuart Lefeaux, Superintendent of Parks in greater Vancouver. Lefeaux discusses various aspects of the interaction between parks, the Parks Board and the public as well as Parks Board personnel, Stanley Park history, recreational activities, and services offered to the public such as supervised playgrounds and refreshment services. In addition, the film documents a visit to Queen Elizabeth Park including footage of Century Rock, which is a time capsule located there that is to be opened in 2054. During the visit, Ross Mortimer interviews Grace McCarthy, Parks Board Commissioner, about the park's history, current uses and future visions and planning. The film also documents Ross Mortimer's interview with the park's landscape designer who discusses garden design as well as various types of trees and flowers in the park.
