Man Alive

Man Alive (Canadian TV series)

Man Alive was a Canadian television series about faith and spirituality. It took its name from a poem by St. Irenaeus, a second Century Bishop of Lyon who wrote: The glory of God is a man truly alive.

The program, debuted in 1967 on CBC Television, hosted by Roy Bonisteel. Bonisteel retired in 1989, and was replaced by Peter Downie. Arthur Kent replaced Downie for one season. R. H. Thomson hosted until the show was canceled.

Man Alive took a diverse non-denominational approach to religious and spiritual matters. The program covered a wide range of topics: nuclear war, UFOs, Holocaust survivors, sexual abuse, Third World development, family relationships, people with disabilities, the Vatican Bank scandal and profiles of religious figures such as Mother Theresa, Desmond Tutu and the Dalai Lama.

After several seasons of co-productions with Vision TV and the Life Network, the last episode aired on CBC Television 17 December 2000.
