Pioneer Dies

Last month, Charles Allard, a medical doctor turned TV mogul, died in his hometown of Edmonton, Canada, after a battle with lung cancer, at the age of 71.

Dr. Allard (pictured here on a 1983 Video Age cover story) was the founder of Allarcom, whose television holdings include CKRD-TV, Superchannel, production and post-production facilities, and 50 per cent of The Family Channel. Last year, he sold his ITV station for C$160 million. Allard is survived by his wife, four sons, two daughters, and 11 grandchildren.
