What Happens on the Road Stays on the Road UNTIL NOW!
CKCO-TV, 864 King St. West in Kitchener, Ontario went on the air on March 1, April 1954. Over the next 60+ years CKCO-TV personnel filmed in more than 50 countries around the world. From Aruba to Zaire (Democratic Republic of the Congo) and Austria to Thailand. Producers, directors, reporters, presenters, and photographers travelled to some of the most exotic and sometimes dangerous countries in the world to bring back stories of interest to local viewers.
Producer/Editor Paul Francescutti spent hours taping/editing the stories that were not for broadcast.
Stories to be told over a cold beer, cup of coffee or around the firepit.
