Canada's History - - CURRENTS -

Dur­ing the Sec­ond World War, the CBC news broad­caster-turned-ac­tor was known as the “Voice of Doom” for his res­o­nant voice and of­ten-grave news re­ports. In later years, the Ot­tawa na­tive found in­ter­na­tional fame as Ben Cartwright, the cow­boy pa­tri­arch and star of the long-run­ning tele­vi­sion se­ries Bo­nanza. He also played Com­man­der Adama in the pop­u­lar sci­ence fic­tion se­ries Bat­tlestar Galac­tica. Born Lyon Hi­man Green in 1915, the ac­tor, news pre­sen­ter, and tele­vi­sion pitch­man died in 1987.
