TV history this week: campaigns and lighthouses.

CPAC, the Cable Public Access Channel, launches "The Campaigns," a series of documentaries on notable Canadian political campaigns, starting Sunday 9 pm ET with the 1988 Free Trade election.  Ray Argyle emails us:
A heads-up that CPAC-TV (Canadian Public Affairs Cable) will be airing a series, CAMPAIGN, based in part on my book "Turning Points: The Campaigns That Changed Canada". Episode 1 kicks off Sunday, Nov. 24 at 9 pm with a show on the 1968 "Great Free Trade Election," followed on Dec. 1 by the 1917 vote, "Blood and the Ballot." I appear in the next two shows, Dec. 8, the 1945 election "The Gentle Revolution," and Dec. 15, the 1968 election, "The Changing of the Guard." If you care to watch, you'll find CPAC at the upper end of your cable dial.

Meanwhile, Land and Sea at noon on Nov 24 has "Lighthouses," on the history and current status of Canadian lighthouses.
