In the late 70a, the CBC aired a TV series called "Cities"

Famous people gave you, the viewer, a guided tour of their home town.

We went to New York, Sydney, Leningrad, Stockholm, London...

The best one was Toronto
Not because there is anything special about Toronto.
It was because Glenn Gould was the Tour Guide.

He was Awesome!
A recluse,
an ecentric that hasn't left his house in 15 years,
turned loose in front of the camera,
showing off a city he hasn't seen before.
The whole thing just worked.

Studs Terkel in Chicago was good too.
