April 28, 2008 - Behind the Scenes
The photo on the right was taken on the set of "Strange Paradise". The Maljardin drawing room is to the right of the photo, the cafe is on the left, and in the middle is the laboratory set. Among the identifiable crewmembers are Production Assistant Lara Cochrane (on the right side) and Lighting Technician Laddy Thompson (standing on the ladder).

 



April 21, 2008 - Pilot Set
At right is a panoramic view of the main Maljardin set for the Strange Paradise pilot. This set was assembled in Studio "A" of CJOH TV in Ottawa. Stage lighting can be seen in the upper portion of the photo, and Erica's cryo capsule can be seen through the door in the middle of the picture. Not seen in the photo, the set for the cafe was situated to the left of the Maljardin drawing room.





April 14, 2008 - CJOH Studio "A"
Prior to filming at the Crawley Studios, Strange Paradise shot its pilot episode at CJOH Television in Ottawa, using Studio "A". Corridors, rooms and even the board room of the CJOH offices doubled for Dan Forrest's law offices, but all scenes in the Cafe and the mansion on Maljardin were filmed in Studio "A". Currently, Studio "A" is empty and only used on occasion.






April 7, 2008 - CJOH Studio D
In March of 1970, Strange Paradise production moved from the Crawley Film Studios into the newly completed Studio "D" at CJOH Television in Ottawa. Studio "D" was constructed specifically for Strange Paradise, to eliminate the logistical problems of filming in the Gatineau Hills. Unfortunately, Strange Paradise only occupied the studio for about two months, until the end of May 1970. Currently, Studio "D" is closed to all production and access is prohibited.
