Eye Witness was a series of short monthly newsreels produced by the NFB during the post-war period. Each installment included several short reports on issues dear to Canadians. In episode No. 34, we see: The Fireman Is a Grocer, which takes a closer look at the voluntary fire department in Kentville, Nova Scotia; Artistry in Clay and Cloth, which introduces us to a Czech artist skilled in ceramics and a group of artists from Montreal who create novel designs with silk screens and colourful dyes; and Winter Morning, which offers a glimpse of a day in the life on the Wiebe farm in Saskatchewan.
