As it Happened- 1937-38

The second in the Rewind series called "As It Happened." It won't surprise you to hear that it comes from that venerable CBC current affairs program still going strong, "As It Happens."

Back in 1978, that show decided to take a look at what had gone on in the world from 1936 to 1968 using archival material...Great idea, wouldn't you say?

On this edition, the As It Happens take on the years 1937 and 1938.

In 1937, an American divorcee had the attention of not only a King but the rest of the world. Also two exciting adventures in flight that ended in tragedy.
