Though the very first piece on the Surveillance Camera Players (SCP) was written by an American and published on 28 July 1998 here in New York, interest in the group during its first few years (1996 to 1999) was strongest in Canada, not in the U.S.A. (As of this writing, e.g., in October 2000, American TV -- though it has put the SCP on the air several times -- still isn't as interested in the SCP as broadcasters "abroad," especially in Western Europe.) The Canadian media were in fact the first to put the SCP on television: on 10 October 1998, the group was featured by Zone Libre, a show from Montreal that airs on the Canadian Broadcast Company; and on 21 November 1999, the group was featured on N3TV, a show from Toronto that also airs on the CBC. In between these two appearances, Sarah Richards published an article on the SCP in The National Post, which is published in Toronto.
In 2000, the SCP were again put on TV by the CBC: this time by Media Television, which ran a segment on 23 September 2000.
Oh, Canada! Thanks, eh?
