A History Of CKUT Program Guides

Trace the station's programming history and graphic design trends year by year with a look at all the program grids we found in our archives.

We’re working on the loading times for these pages…

A little different from Statik, these programming guides were typically just a single sheet of paper (with 2010 and 2017 being notable exceptions) used for telling the world about what was on the air any certain year.

Maybe you have something we’re missing? Please contact archivist@ckut.ca with any questions, requests, or contributions to our archives. We have some undated program guides at the bottom… give them a look and let us know if you know when they are from.

The preservation of this collection and many others on the Time Capsule blog was made possible by Library and Archives Canada’s Documentary Heritage Communities Program (2022).
