Bob Dylan On CBC Quest in 1964

Quest aired on CBC Television from 1961 to 1964. It was a Canadian entertainment series that took an experimental approach which evoked negative reaction. MP Edwin William Brunsden, denounced the episode in Parliament as "depraved... disgusting... garbage... and a rank violation of the sanctity of the Canadian home and family." CBC received more critical letters from viewers for Quest than for any other program. Facing cancellation, show producer Daryl Duke decided to go out with a bang: 27 minutes of nothing but Bob Dylan, his guitar.
