First published in 1985, Jolts is a lively examination of the differences between Canadian and U.S. television.
In this provocative, funny book, Morris Wolfe argues that there are profound differences between Canada and the U.S., which are reflected every day on the "box populi". The author sees Canadian television as an oasis of compassion and realism, reflected in public affairs, drama and comedy programming.
Jolts offers a fascinating look at the great tradition of Canadian television programming, a subject that remains timely today.
