"This Beat Goes On" is a CBC-produced 90-minute documentary that chronicles the rise of the Canadian music biz in the 1970s.

The program is split into sections according to music categories. Almost all the artist profiles include rare concert/video performances but please note these are not the full songs--in most cases they are only half. For most artists, I have written in parentheses the songs performed:

Bachman-Turner Overdrive ("You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet"); Rush ("Closer to the Heart"); Trooper ("Raise a Little Hell"); Max Webster ("Paradise Skies"); April Wine ("Roller"); Loverboy ("Turn Me Loose"); Prism ("Spaceship Superstar").

Terry Jacks ("Seasons in the Sun"); Burton Cummings ("Stand Tall"--includes about 30 seconds of Alice Cooper "Killer" tour footage when Burton speaks of opening for Alice); Dan Hill ("Sometimes When We Touch"); Gino Vanelli ("I Just Wanna Stop"); Nick Gilder ("Hot Child in the City").

There's a Blues-Rock section which mentions Offenbach, Mainline, Dutch Mason, Downchild Blues Band ("Flip, Flop and Fly") and David Wilcox.

The folk-music scene mentions Joni Mitchell ("Free Man in Paris"--though some of the performance footage of her seems to be from the late '80s); Kate and Anna McGarrigle; Anne Murray ("Cotton Jenny"); Gordon Lightfoot ("Sundown"); Valdy ("Play Me a Rock and Roll Song"); The Good Brothers; Stan Rogers, Figgy Duff and Bruce Cockburn ("Wondering Where the Lions Are").

The punk/alternative section profiles The Dishes ("Hot Property"); The Kings ("This Beat Goes On/Switchin' To Glide"); Nash the Slash ("Wolf"); Diodes ("Tired of Waking Up Tired"); Teenage Head ("Let's Shake"); Pointed Sticks, The Viletones, D.O.A., The Demics.
