Not much is known about this series except that it was produced by the CBC and broadcast at 10:30pm. Primarily thrillers adapted from classic horror stories, the series seems to have run between 1968-71. Unfortunately, the sound quality on most of these is pretty bad — if anyone has better quality episodes or even just additional information, I’d love to know more. Episodes include:
