RCAF Flyers - 1948 Olympic Hockey Champions The Winter Olympics certainly have grown in prestige over the years. Compare today's preparations to what they were in the 1940s. Here is the story of the ragtag 1948 Olympic hockey gold medallists from Canada. Canada had originally planned not to send a team to the Winter Olympic Games in St. Moritz, Switzerland, but the Herculean efforts of one man and his connections to the Royal Canadian Air Force got things done. In the end, the RCAF squad surprised their many critics. They went undefeated in the eight-game round-robin tourney and outscored their opponents 69-5. This mini feature was created 40 years later by CBC sports. It aired during the network's coverage of the 1988 Winter Olympic Games.

Citizen Kane - Final Scene This is the final scene of what many film critics consider the greatest movie ever made: Citizen Kane (1941). The movie begins with the lonely death of Charles Foster Kane (based on the life of William Randolph Hearst) in his vast gated mansion. Kane's dying word was "Rosebud!" A reporter wants to know the significance of the word so he tracks down and interviews colleagues of the deceased great man. Kane's life is shown in retrospect from childhood until his death. Kane's mother had run a boarding house in Colorado. She acquired the deed to a mine in lieu of payment from a boarder. The mine provided enormous wealth for young Kane who lived a life of privilege and became famous as a mud-raking newspaper baron and a scandal-plagued failed political candidate. So what's the significance of Rosebud? It was the name of his sled he had when he was an ordinary child. It means everything...or nothing at all. It's up to the viewer to decide.

Ben Hogan - 1949 Car Crash Ben Hogan had been on the PGA tour since 1938 and was an established star when his life nearly came to a premature end in 1949. Hogan and his wife, Valerie, survived a head-on collision with a Greyhound bus on a fog-shrouded bridge, early in the morning, east of Van Horn, Texas on February 2, 1949. Hogan threw himself across Valerie in order to protect her, and would have been killed had he not done so, as the steering column punctured the driver's seat. This accident left Hogan, age 36, with a double-fracture of the pelvis, a fractured collar bone, a left ankle fracture, a chipped rib, and near-fatal blood clots: he would suffer lifelong circulation problems and other physical limitations. His doctors said he might never walk again, let alone play golf competitively. While in hospital, Hogan's life was endangered by a blood clot problem, leading doctors to tie off the vena cava. Hogan left the hospital on April 1, 59 days after the accident. After regaining his strength by extensive walking, he resumed golf activities in November 1949. He returned to the PGA Tour to start the 1950 season, at the Los Angeles Open, where he tied with Sam Snead over 72 holes, but lost the 18-hole playoff.
