Pat PATTERSON, Broadcaster And Writer (1921-2005)
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation pioneer hosted Trans-Canada Matinee, launched Polka Dot Door and wrote umpteen documentaries, plays and musicals but always turned down accolades
By Sabitri GHOSH, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Kingston -- Even in the form of a disembodied voice, Pat PATTERSON turned heads. Her firm yet supple contralto, one Canadian Broadcasting Corporation listener wrote, was "the most beautiful speaking voice" she had ever heard. Furthermore, said the fan letter, Ms. PATTERSON's show Trans-Canada Matinee "has helped me raise my children, kept me informed on world affairs, and acquainted me with the little but interesting people in the world -- and always with a chuckle." Added the Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, writer: "Your audience has always felt that Matinee was you, Pat."
For Ms. PATTERSON, there was no higher compliment. As striking in person as her radio voice insinuated, the prolific broadcaster, author and composer wanted her work to speak for her; she was merely the transmitter. "She was very retiring and very unassuming," said her partner, Sheila GILBERT. " Her attitude was, 'I don't want anything. No fuss, no muss.' "
In later years, she recoiled from public attention, even failing to show up at the 1986 Gemini Awards to pick up the John Drainie Award for lifetime achievement in broadcasting. Orphaned amid the festivities, the plaque was eventually retrieved from a garbage bin (so the story goes) and delivered in private.
The lifetime it celebrated was rarely discussed by Ms. PATTERSON. All she would reveal of her early years was her birthplace, Victoria, and the fact she earned a licentiate in voice and violin. A precocious only child, she co-wrote her high school's anthem with next-door neighbour Lucy BERTON, a sister of writer-historian Pierre BERTON. At 21, she joined the Royal Canadian Air Force and drove ambulances in Britain for the Red Cross. Returning to Canada in 1944, she moved to Toronto, where she hoped to have a career in advertising.
An agency man referred her to a friend, who referred her to another friend who worked at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. There, she landed jobs in the record library and continuity department.
"It was strictly the understudy in the wings department," Ms. PATTERSON told Peter GZOWSKI on a Morningside interview in 1986. "An announcer by the name of Frank Herbert was doing an afternoon concert hour, and I planned that program -- I planned the music and so on. One day, he was ill, and no one could be found to take his place. And the boss said, would I like to try it? So I did. And that was it: I was hooked."
In 1948, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation gave Ms. PATTERSON her own nationwide show, Pat's Music Room, half an hour of her diverse musical selections. She also lent her voice, programming skills and writing talents to a host of other network enterprises, prompting one columnist to dub her a "Jill of all trades."
When the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation joined the television revolution in 1952, the poised and telegenic Ms. PATTERSON led the charge. She often served as a pitchwoman for live-to-air commercials; writer June CALLWOOD remembered seeing her in one for electric stoves, "the kind that she just stands there and says she just loves her stove."
As Ms. PATTERSON's reputation grew, Ms. CALLWOOD's husband, Trent FRAYNE, was sent to interview her for Chatelaine. "You two would be great Friends," he told his wife. When the women met through a mutual friend, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Dorothy (Dodi) ROBB, they did indeed get along famously.
"We had the same sense of humour and the same ethics about behaviour she was a little more Victorian than I was, but we were both very proper women," Ms. CALLWOOD said.
When the still-single Ms. PATTERSON became pregnant and decided to raise her child herself, she turned to Ms. Callwood for support. "That was very unusual, to keep a baby in those days," Ms. Callwood said. "What people did was hide out and give the baby up for adoption, but she was not going to do that. At the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, which was more broad-minded than most places, it was still a bit of a shocker."
Through resourceful time management and the help of close Friends, Ms. PATTERSON managed to rear her son, David, while working on three radio and two television shows at the same time. It was a remarkable feat that she divulged to no one but the most trusted of intimates.
She found sanctuary, as well as creative satisfaction, in her profession. "You sit in that booth and you are quite private," said fellow Canadian Broadcasting Corporation employee Liz FAWKES, who befriended the older woman and later babysat her son.
In the pinnacle of her Canadian Broadcasting Corporation career, Ms. PATTERSON was chosen to host Trans-Canada Matinee in 1961. Aimed at a daytime audience of women -- even as that audience's perceptions of itself and its role were shifting -- the public-affairs program offered interviews with the likes of W.H. Auden, George Balanchine, and Laurence Olivier.
"If and when women achieve that mythical status they keep fussing about, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Matinee should deserve some of the credit," wrote Toronto Telegram columnist DuBarry CAMPEAU in 1968. "It is lively and literate and any woman or man listening to it will be both entertained and informed."
Though upset by the abrupt cancellation of Matinee in 1971, Ms. PATTERSON smoothly segued into children's entertainment, arguably the love of her professional life. In the 1950s and '60s, she had collaborated with Ms. ROBB on a children's musical fantasy, an after-school television program, and three children's musicals. Now, the partners set to work on a new children's program, The Polka Dot Door. Besides composing the buoyant theme song -- still hummed on schoolyards and playgrounds across Canada -- Ms. PATTERSON also co-wrote the first 60 shows. "She had a sense of play, she had a sense of fun," said Ms. CALLWOOD, citing these as the cues for Ms. PATTERSON's approach to writing for children.
In a 1973 interview, Ms. PATTERSON also spoke of her strong sense of responsibility. "I think we're so conditioned, so tuned into the fact we're writing for children, we have to take care." She wanted her plays and programs to act as "good influences," she said, "if not in a moral sense, at least in a getting-along sense."
Ms. PATTERSON's words and music were behind many of the most durable children's shows of the 1970s and '80s, including numerous Sharon, Lois and Bram specials and Fred Penner's Place. She also developed and hosted short-run Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio series, and wrote plays and documentaries for radio and television. Her proudest achievement -- a docudrama on the life of landscape painter and war artist David Milne, A Path of His Own, which she also narrated -- won seven Canadian Film and Television Awards in 1980.
A scrupulous craftswoman, she was a critic of her own work, too. In a 1990 letter, she asked the editors of The Encyclopedia of Music in Canada to drop all references to her musical Henry Green and the Mighty Machine, "as it had a very brief life, while the three musicals previously mentioned have continued to get productions after more than 20 years."
But real life allowed no such revisions. In the late 1980s, Ms. PATTERSON had a permanent falling-out with Ms. ROBB, which affected her personally as well as professionally. Even more devastating was her son's death in 1994 from cancer. "That was a disaster," said Ms. FAWKES. " You don't want your children to go before you."
Pat PATTERSON was born in Victoria on December 4, 1921, and died in Toronto on December 19, 2005, of cancer. She was 84. She leaves her partner, Sheila GILBERT.

Barrie woman charged with murdering her children
Family embroiled in bitter custody battle
By Gregory BONNELL and Allison JONES / The Canadian Press
A troubled mother embroiled in a court battle over custody of her two young daughters was facing murder charges Wednesday after police discovered the girls dead in a west-end apartment.
An early-morning phone call summoned police to the apartment, where they made an emotional and grisly discovery: the bodies of a one-year-old girl and her three-year-old sister.
Also in the apartment was the mother of the victims, 31-year-old Frances Elaine CAMPIONE, who was taken to hospital for a brief examination before she was charged with two counts of first-degree murder.
Residents of the building expressed shock and disbelief as they described seeing the girls playing outside; those who know their mother said the family was in the midst of a bitter custody dispute. "Nobody would help her, it seemed like," said one of the building's tenants, speaking on condition of anonymity. "She was reaching out for help and she was struggling.
She was having a hard time."
CAMPIONE, whom the neighbour said lived in shelter before recently moving into the apartment complex, was scheduled to appear in family court today on what a judge would only describe as "family matters." She's now scheduled to appear in criminal court instead.
Sharon LYNN, whose daughter lives in the building and is a good friend of CAMPIONE, said it's impossible for strangers to understand what she's been going through.
"(She) was tormented and nobody saw the signs," said LYNN. "( Imagine) you are so desperate that you actually kill your children, to take away the pain to send them to be with the Lord."
"The little girls are precious, their eyes would light up," she continued. "My little grand_son (said he) was going to marry her (oldest daughter)."
CAMPIONE called 911 at about 6: 15 a.m. Wednesday "to notify us that there were two children dead in the apartment," Barrie police Insp. Jim FARRELL said.
The sight of the bodies being removed from the building on adult-size stretchers proved emotional for one officer on the scene. "To see two young bodies being brought out definitely choked me up," said Sgt. Dave GOODBRAND.
"I can only imagine what officers and staff had to face when they saw those children… three and one, they're very innocent and it's very difficult."
Police did not release the names of the girls or how they were killed. Post-mortem examinations were expected to take place Thursday in Toronto.
Neighbours walking their dogs in the small park beside the building said they would see the girls there every day.
"Last Sunday, one little girl was out in the yard looking for a prince," said Reid, who declined to give his last name.
When asked about the mother, Reid replied: "She kept to herself."
Another neighbour, John LAINE, said he didn't know the family well but he recalled seeing the two girls playing in a park outside the apartment building.
"They were happy, go-lucky kids," he said.
The Toronto Star reported on its website that the father lives with his parents in Woodbridge, Ontario - a suburb northwest of Toronto where he lived with CAMPIONE and the two girls before their marriage fell apart.
Neighbours identified the father as Leo CAMPIONE, a hard-working, soft-spoken construction worker who loved nothing more than time with his children, the Star reported.
"He wanted to work things out for the kids, and he loved his wife, too," said neighbour Elisa RIZZO, a grandmother who watched Leo CAMPIONE grow up on the street, fall in love, then suffer through marital breakdown.
"He's a very good guy," "she told the Star. "Always kept his nose clean. Very respectful."

Girls slain on eve of custody battle
Their mother is facing two counts of first-degree murder after the deaths in Barrie.
By Kim BRADLEY, Sun Media, Thurs., October 5, 2006
Barrie -- Two young sisters described as the picture of innocence with blond hair and bright eyes were found dead in their Barrie apartment yesterday on the eve of a family court appearance.
The girls, three-year-old Sophie and one-year-old Serena CAMPIONE, were at the centre of a vicious custody battle between their parents that involved allegations of all-out abuse, Friends and neighbours said.
Frances Elaine CAMPIONE, 31, was taken to hospital for observation and was later charged with two counts of first-degree murder. She's to appear in court this morning.
CAMPIONE and her estranged husband, Leo, were to appear in family court today and that had put the single, 31-year-old mother living on social assistance under a tremendous amount of stress, said Sharon LYNN, whose grandchildren played with the girls.
"This was a tormented woman," LYNN sobbed from outside the apartment. "This woman needs a hug. She needs to know people love her."
LYNN said every social agency has been involved in the case, including the police, but, with her parents living in the Maritimes, she had little support of her own. She called CAMPIONE a "wonderful" mom.
"Imagine you are so desperate to want to take (the children) away from the pain so they could be with the Lord," she said, adding there were no warning signs. "That's what makes this so bad."
LYNN and her daughter, Amanda, had the grim task of explaining to Amanda's sons, ages 4 and 11, what happened.
"My grand_son said he wanted to marry Sophie," LYNN cried, adding the "sweet and precious girls' eyes sparkled."
Police said the woman called 911 at 6: 15 a.m. saying the girls were dead. When officers arrived, they found "evidence to indicate that the children had been the victims of homicide," Barrie police Sgt. Dave GOODBRAND said.
Diana ROBINSON, a neighbour, said the woman had a restraining order against her ex-husband.
"They were trying to keep him out of the building," she said through tears.
Ann HARVEY, community relations manager for Barrie municipal non-profit housing, which owns the building, said the horrific murders have shocked the community.
"This just makes us realize the importance for advocating for everybody and making sure the social supports that are needed in our community are here," she said.

Barrie mom faced custody hearing
Girls, 1 and 3, found dead at home
Family court appearance set for today
By Jim WILKES and Jessica LEEDER, Staff Reporters with files from Peter EDWARDS
Barrie -- Friends say a woman charged with killing her two young daughters feared she was about to lose them in a bitter custody battle with her estranged husband.
The latest chapter in the custody dispute was to have played out in family court today, but yesterday's slayings of Sophia CAMPIONE, 3, and her year-old sister Serena have brought that hearing to a tragic end.
Frances Elaine CAMPIONE, 31, will instead face two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of the blond-haired tots who one friend described as "perfect little angels."
Neighbours in the 13-storey apartment building on Coulter Street, a stone's thrown from Bayfield St. and Highway 400 in Barrie's north end, were stunned by news that police had found the children dead when they answered an emergency call shortly after 6 a.m. yesterday.
Insp. Jim FARRELL said CAMPIONE had placed a 911 call reporting "two dead children inside an apartment."
As officers stood watch over the slain youngsters' bodies, CAMPIONE was taken to Royal Victoria Hospital for a medical examination and then moved to police headquarters for questioning.
Police were awaiting the results of autopsies today to learn how the children were killed.
"It's a sad day for the city of Barrie," FARRELL said.
CAMPIONE had moved to the apartment, behind the huge Bayfield Mall, a few months ago after separating from her husband, Leo, who was living with his parents in Woodbridge.
Neighbours said Children's Aid Society workers had visited her twice in recent weeks as she prepared for today's custody hearing.
Some recalled seeing the little girls running in the hallways of the building or holding on to their mother in the elevators.
"They were the sweetest little girls that you've ever seen in your life -- tiny, petite and well-behaved," said neighbour Cathie MORGAN, 50. "The mother always took such good care of them. They were always dressed in princess dresses."
MORGAN said she was struggling to understand how anyone could take two precious, innocent lives.
CAMPIONE was a "woman who was tormented," said friend Sharon LYNN, who wiped tears from red-rimmed eyes as she placed flowers outside the building late yesterday afternoon.
LYNN said CAMPIONE was struggling to cope with a life that was "so bad.
"That mother needs a hug," she said. "She needs to know that people love her."
John KERR said he last saw the mother and daughters in an elevator a day earlier.
"She's not a happy woman," said KERR, 37. "I've never ever seen that woman smile.
"She was not a happy person at all."
A resident of the Woodbridge neighbourhood where Leo CAMPIONE grew up said the girls' mother went into a deep depression after the birth of her second child last year.
She said the mother dropped the children off at her in-laws, saying she couldn't deal with them.
At one point, she didn't even want to see the kids, so the grandmother took them in, the neighbour said.
One neighbour on the Woodbridge street where the dead girl's grandparents live collapsed when she heard the news of the slayings.
Other neighbours described the girls' father as a hard-working, soft-spoken construction worker who loved to spend time with his children.
"He loved his kids," said Elisa RIZZO, a grandmother who watched Leo CAMPIONE grow up on the street, fall in love, then suffer through marriage break-up.
"He wanted to work things out for the kids, and he loved his wife too," said RIZZO.
Family members guarded the grandparents' door from the media as red-eyed neighbours dropped in to pay their respects.
Neighbours said the girls' grandparents loved to walk the girls through the neighbourhood where many families have lived for a quarter-century.
"They would walk them every day," one said.
"They loved to take them to the park and to church," said another.
The building where the slayings took place is operated by the Barrie Municipal Non-Profit Housing Corporation, which provides geared-to-income and full-market-rate units.
Ann HARVEY, the corporation's community relations manager, said she had met the family and described the two dead girls as "very sweet."
"The whole family was very wonderful -- gentle, sweet people," she said. "They were nice young children.
"There's just sadness, just overwhelming sadness."
Barrie had just two homicides in 2005.
"Barrie doesn't see too many homicides in a year," said Sgt. Dave GOODBRAND. "To make it two children, it touches the hearts of everybody.
"It's going to take some time for people to try to consume why this occurred," he said. "Hopefully we'll have some answers for the public in time to come.
"There's still a lot of legwork that has to be done by investigators."
GOODBRAND said he was moved as he watched the youngsters' bodies removed from the building.
"It chokes me up," he said. "I have two children about the same ages.
"I can't imagine anything like this. It would be my worst nightmare."
