Bill HARCOURT, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Producer 1925-2005
Newspaper reporter who switched to broadcasting launched Newsmagazine, Ombudsman, Tuesday Night and Marketplace
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Tuesday, August 23, 2005, Page S9
Bill HARCOURT pretty well invented the television documentary. An experienced reporter and editor who cut his teeth working for Canadian and British wire services, he helped develop two areas of television news: live specials and long features.
He started working in television news in 1960, only eight years after it came on the air in Canada and by 1969 he was the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's main man on the biggest story of the year -- if not the decade. In late July of that year, astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walked on the moon and Bill HARCOURT spent 26 hours straight in a control room masterminding coverage for a captivated Canadian audience.
As the head of News Specials, he co-ordinated coverage from the United States and across Canada. It was a complex broadcast, hosted in Canada by the eccentric Gordon DONALDSON, a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reporter with a thick Scottish brogue.
What Mr. HARCOURT was doing was, in fact, creating what is now called a long-form documentary, building excitement into the empty space when the astronauts were just travelling. He had experience with live television -- political conventions and elections -- still the most difficult form of broadcasting since mistakes can't be edited.
The documentary form of television was something he helped mould at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, first as a producer with Newsmagazine, travelling around the world with a cameraman, soundman and reporter, then with a weekly documentary series, Tuesday Night.
"He made a real contribution, in my book, to establishing the documentary on television. There was already the National Film Board of Canada form, but the television documentary had to be invented," said Michael MacLEAR, a television reporter and documentary maker who worked with Mr. HARCOURT in the 1960s.
"Bill HARCOURT is one of the great unsung heroes of news and current affairs," said Mr. MacLEAR. "And he was my favourite executive producer."
Well-read and confident, he let the reporter get on with telling the story -- all of which made him easy to work with. All his former colleagues mentioned his good manners and even temper. Ray HAZZAN, who was executive producer of Newsmagazine before Mr. HARCOURT took the job, said he was so polite and well dressed that others took to calling him The Senator.
Bill HARCOURT grew up in Guelph, Ontario, the son of doctor. He graduated from Guelph Collegiate Institute and went on to Loyola College in Montreal.
During summers Mr. HARCOURT worked on passenger ships on the Great Lakes. At that time, it was a popular form of travel from ports such as Toronto, Detroit and Duluth. He started as a cabin boy and worked his way up to chief purser.
One of the ships on which he was purser was The Noronic, known as the Queen of the Great Lakes. As it happened, a disastrous fire aboard the Noronic was also his first and only front-page story at the Kitchener Waterloo Record where he had taken a job as a junior reporter. The ship was moored overnight in Toronto when a little after 2 a.m. on September 15, 1949, fire raged through its five decks. Of the 571 passengers -- mostly Americans sailing from Detroit -- and 174 crew on board, 119 died.
As luck would have it, Bill HARCOURT was in Toronto that night and reported the tragedy back to his newspaper. "It was particularly tough for Bill," said his wife, Nada HARCOURT. "He knew many of the crew members on board the Noronic."
A short while later, Mr. HARCOURT went to work for Canadian Press in Toronto and almost right away moved to New York to cover two different beats: the United Nations and Broadway. For him, it was no trouble to juggle show business and international politics and that impressed his boss, Gil PURCELL, who wanted him to come home and report from across Canada. Instead, Mr. HARCOURT went to London and worked on the North American desk at Reuters.
After five years, he returned home to a job at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation where he was made a writer and line-up editor on The National, but soon moved to Newsmagazine, a weekly half-hour program that took an in-depth look at stories.
Michael MacLEAR recalled there were two types of stories that made it on Newsmagazine: longer-form news items on stories of the day, and features. During the 1960's and early 1970's, Mr. HARCOURT accompanied such Newsmagazine reporters as Mr. MacLEAR and William STEVENSON to cover stories in South Africa, Vietnam and Russia.
"He was much under-estimated," said Mr. STEVENSON, who went on to write A Man Called Intrepid, the story of the Canadian spymaster William STEPHENSON. " One of the reasons he was so easy to get on with was that he didn't need to bolster his importance as so many executive producers do."
In late 1969, after the success of the moon walk and Newsmagazine, Mr. HARCOURT became executive producer of Thursday Night, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's flagship documentary program. The show later changed its broadcast night and name to Tuesday Night.
In January of 1974, Mr. HARCOURT started the program, Ombudsman, with Robert COOPER, an unknown 28-year-old lawyer. With Mr. COOPER acting as a crusader for the little guy, Ombudsman was a first in Canadian broadcasting.
"He was very serious about his work and kept the program out of legal trouble," remembered Mr. COOPER. "I think I was nervous and difficult at first but he was patient."
After seven years on the program, Mr. COOPER went on to be a successful producer in Hollywood where he still works. "I learned from Bill how to take a subject that seems to be educational and earnest and turn it into compelling television."
In 1977, Mr. HARCOURT also took over as executive producer for Marketplace, the long-running consumer-affairs program. It was perhaps the only time one person was executive producer of two major network programs at the same time. He finished his Canadian Broadcasting Corporation career at The Journal, where he worked as a senior adviser.
William Vernon HARCOURT was born on January 23, 1925 in Guelph, Ontario. He died on August 7, 2005. He is survived by his wife Nada, daughter Shelagh and brother John.

THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, James Emerson
It is with deepest sorrow that we wish to announce the sudden passing of James Emerson THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON of London on Friday, March 11, 2005. Jim leaves behind his wife Ellen (GALLOWAY) who has shared the past 48 years lovingly by his side. To carry on the laughter he brought to so many Jim leaves behind his five devoted children Jean (Richard), Ian (Wendy), Bobby, Elaine (Shaun) and Jimmy (Linda). Jim's Irish eyes will smile on forever in the eyes of his adoring grandchildren Rachelle, Andrew, Alex, Allyse, Eric, Randi-Lee, Avalon, Matthew and Lia. Jim is also survived by his dearly loved brothers and sisters; twin John (Olga) THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, Bruce (Joan) THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, Jim PURDON, Ethel BOHONOS, and Jack GALLOWAY. Waiting to greet him in heaven are his parents Tom THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON (1994) and Lorene THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON (1991.) Also waiting with open arms are Tom GALLOWAY (1995) and Ethel GALLOWAY (1991,) Jean PURDON (1993,) Jackie GALLOWAY (2000,) Al BOHONOS (2004) and Mark GALLOWAY (2001.) Jim is survived by numerous nieces and nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews, all of which he loved dearly. Jim will be sorrowfully missed by his multitude of loving and caring Friends. Missing him already are his precious pups Olivia, Toby and Panda.
From Windsor to Ottawa, Jim was well known and loved by all he met in the 30+ years he spent on the road building the sales relationships that were so much more than that. Wherever his travels took him, Jim left behind a legacy of Friendships. There was no problem that a good talk and a good laugh couldn't fix. His attitude towards life and its obstacles was an inspiration to us all. Visitation will be held on Saturday from 7: 00-9:00pm and Sunday 2: 00-4:00 and 7:00-9:00pm at the Westview Funeral Chapel, 709 Wonderland Road North (2 blocks north of Oxford), where the funeral service will be conducted on Monday, March 14, 2005 at 1: 00pm.

Great grandmother to R.J., Zachary, Rachael, Ashley, Kaitlyn, Brooklyn, Angelica, Noah and Tristan. "Grandma" will also be greatly missed by many Friends, extended families and children who were part of her everyday life. The family of Dorothy wish to express sincere thanks and appreciation to everyone who helped care for and love grandma. It is always difficult when someone close to you passes away. However, having caring compassionate nurses and support workers that assisted in the care of our mom, grandmother, great grandmother pass on peacefully and help us deal with our immense grief has helped. Doreen and Allen YOUNG were her primary caregivers and would like to send a special thankyou to Linda WHEELER, our palliative care nurse, Sheila RILEY and Susan WHITE/WHYTE, Karen from The Red Cross, Liz SMITH and Susan MUIR, the services of Community Care Access Centre, and Dr. REMPEL. Cremation has taken place and interment at Greenwood Cemetery will take place in the near future when Frank and Dorothy will be together again... Side by Side... Rest in Peace (xoxoxo). In lieu of flowers donations to the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated. Hug me today, for tomorrow I go, I'm sorry I can't stay, the angels told me so. Out of your arms and into your dreams, I am leaving you now... you know what that means. Don't cry too long because I'm gone, I'm still watching over you. Forever long.
