Ray ARSENAULT: Producer And Director (1929-2006)
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television pioneer who shaped Hockey Night in Canada into what it is today tackled anything. 'You name it, he did it'
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S11
Toronto -- There wasn't much that Ray ARSENAULT didn't do in the early years of television in Canada. The first few years of his career ranged from working at one of the first private television stations in Canada to figuring out how to run ads on the early Hockey Night in Canada. He worked for every network in the country as well as for many independent companies.
"He always believed good television had nothing to do with technological advances and all you ever needed and still do is teamwork, timing and a good yarn. He was a great storyteller and a playful soul," said his daughter Adrienne ARSENAULT, a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation News foreign correspondent.
Ray ARSENAULT produced one of the first live television events in Canada in September of 1954 after the 16-year-old swimmer Marilyn BELL was feted at city hall in Hamilton. The television station was CHCH and it had only started broadcasting in June of that year, less than two years after Canadian Broadcasting Corporation-television had gone on the air.
Mr. ARSENAULT was in charge of working out how to do something that would have been easy in radio but was so far untried in television. City hall was too far from the station to run a cable so they used a microwave dish. "I remember setting up the microwave dish in the clock tower and pointing it back at the station," said Bill LAWRENCE, then a technician at CHCH who went on to become a well-known weatherman. "Ray was the one who directed the entire thing."
Mr. ARSENAULT had been one of three men with American experience hired to produce the first programs at CHCH. He had arrived from Detroit to find a primitive operation with two cameras.
"Someone would say we want to do this, or cover that, and Ray would be the one to figure out how to do it," Mr. LAWRENCE said. "We were all pupils of his and he was an educator in the early days of television in Canada."
A month after the Marilyn BELL program, Mr. ARSENAULT had to work out the logistics of a special broadcast on hurricane Hazel.
Later, at Hockey Night in Canada, he worked for MacLaren Advertising, which owned the rights to the series. One of his colleagues recalled how they came up with a see-through logo for advertisers that could be superimposed over the picture. They would place it in front of the camera lens, then switch to it for a shot of the beer company or service station.
The hockey games were live but so, too, were the commercials. Holed up in a small studio in Toronto's Maple Leaf Gardens, Mr. ARSENAULT would direct Murray WESTGATE, who played the friendly Esso gas station owner, to give his trademark salute, "Happy Motoring." When a break in the play occurred, they would cut away to an ad. It had to be perfect, since it was live.
Perhaps one of Mr. ARSENAULT's toughest jobs was producing a daily situation comedy for CTV. It was called The Trouble with Tracy and could be best described as a kind of I Love Lucy knock-off. It was a co-production of CTV and an American studio to see whether it was possible to produce a daily sitcom.
"It was the first Canadian-produced sitcom, and I played the ditsy blonde," said Diane Nyland PROCTOR. "He was really good with actors, in spite of all the pressure. There was never an angry word between cast, directors and crew."
In spite of the Quebec name, Ray ARSENAULT was from Detroit. His father was part of a generation of Quebeckers who found work in the auto plants of Detroit. Ray went to local schools and learned television at Wayne State University. He joined the U.S. Marines in the late 1940s and remained until just before the start of the Korean War.
After returning home, he started working at WWJ, a television station in Detroit. It was an era in television when everyone who worked in it seemed to do everything. Mr. ARSENAULT learned a lot in a hurry. He quickly became a studio director, a job that demands the ability to run several things at once and yet remain calm. If a director is nervous, it soon shows in the face of the actor or television announcer.
For all that, one of the biggest things to happen to him at CHCH was to meet a young woman named Bette, who worked on the technical side of things. They married about two years later. He soon took his directing skills to MacLaren Advertising where he worked on Hockey Night in Canada but it wasn't long before he moved back to television.
In 1961, Mr. ARSENAULT was hired as executive producer at CFTO, Toronto's first private television station. He was in charge of ensuring things got on the air, trained new studio workers and produced daily programs.
"He was very skilled with live television in the days before we could edit videotape," said Murray CHERCOVER, who was Mr. ARSENAULT's boss at CFTO and then hired him for many projects when he was head of the CTV network. "Ray could go into a studio or live event with five or six cameras and edit by cutting and dissolving from camera to camera as he went along, and keeping to time.
"He did everything in television from documentaries to situation comedy. You name it, he did it"
As an independent producer and director, he also worked on the popular King of Kensington series. He was a founding member of the Director's Guild of Canada.
Raymond ARSENAULT was born in Detroit on December 28, 1929. He died of a pulmonary embolism in Toronto on August 27, 2006. He leaves his wife, Bette, and daughter, Adrienne, and sister, Mary.
