100 years of social change...

Babe provides the journalistic glue in her 1940’s no-nonsense, tongue in cheek style. Shot in period sets at the Canadian Museum of Civilization and in a specially constructed 1940’s newsroom, 20th Century Gals (According to Babe) both entertains and educates – painlessly.
