    Thanks for the link, tvp!

    After scanning through the full list on the TSN site, it's clear that in addition to Edwin Harrison's quest, there are going to be some really compelling stories presented, and for anyone who's interested in the history of the CFL, this is going to be as close as it gets to "must see" television...

    However, one thing I didn't see was any prospective air dates for the series...?

    The question I have is how can a plane crash in 1956 set the stage for the modern Grey Cup game when it was going on for nearly 50 years at the time? I know that a number of CFL Western All Stars were killed in that crash, in particular from the Winnipeg Blue Bombers & Saskatchewan Roughriders. I have read about that crash in a number of articles writen about it over the years. However that is the first time that story was presented with a slant like that. Interesting.
