Short history of Reach for the Top exterpted from Wikipedia. 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reach_for_the_Top


The televised Reach for the Top series was first shown on CBC Television  affiliate CBUT  in VancouverBritish Columbia  in 1961. It was based on the BBC  programme Top of the Form . In that first year, a team from three high schools in Burnaby, British Columbia  - Fred Affleck, Robert French, Lynne Mader and Marilyn Pelzer - defeated every other team and took all the prizes. The first national Reach for the Top tournament took place in 1965, and was won by Vincent Massey Collegiate Institute  from Etobicoke, Ontario . The series was filmed at locations across Canada with the national championships held in MontrealQuebec . In 1968 joint effort by CBC and BBC led to the short-lived Trans-World Top Team in which teams from the United Kingdom  played teams from Canada.
Alex Trebek  hosted the Toronto version for several years. In Vancouver, the show was hosted by Terry Garner (1961-1982). In Windsor , the show was hosts were Don Daly and Marty Adler. In London , the show was hosted by Mark Lade, with judge Steve Officer. In Montreal, the show was hosted by Bob Cadman and by Marc Coté. Shelagh Rogers , later a host for CBC Radio , was a contestant on the original broadcasts of the show. Bill Guest hosted the National Finals on CBC from 1969 to 1985.
The CBC stopped airing Reach for the Top in 1985, but it continues to be shown under the aegis of Reach for the Top Inc. CFPL-TV , the former CBC affiliate station in London, continued to air local competitions for several years, and hosted the provincial and national competitions. From 2000-2008, the national finals were aired by CLT (now OWN: the Oprah Winfrey Network ), hosted by Graham Neil of CFRN-TV  in Edmonton. In 2009, the national finals were not aired except for the final game, which was filmed in the TVOntario  studio. It is unknown whether or not TVO will air the 2010 national finals in its entirety. Until 2009, games at the provincial level were broadcast on stations unique to their respective provinces, among them Ontario  on TVO with Nicole Stamp  of TVOKids  (and produced and directed by Sidney M. Cohen ), British Columbia  with Tamara Stanners on Knowledge , and Alberta  with Graham Neil on Access . However, only Ontario provincial level games are now aired (by TVO).
In 1985, Reach for the Top Inc., a private company, was established by Sandy Stewart , on agreement with the CBC. Mr. Stewart then joined with his wife, Patricia Stewart, in partnership with Robert Jeffrey  and Paul Russell of Paulus Productions Inc. to create Schoolreach, an in-school version of Reach for the Top available across Canada by subscription.[1]  Schoolreach is organized among the different school boards in Canada, and monthly tournaments are played, culminating in a district final each spring. The winner in each district participates in the provincial finals (which are televised in Ontario), and the provincial winner competes in the national championship.
Reach for the Top Inc. produced a season of programming in Toronto in 1986 and 1987. The Reach for the Top National Finals were revived in 1988. In 1995, Sandy and Pat Stewart retired from Reach For The TopReach for the Top and Schoolreach were then taken over by Paulus Productions Inc. under the direction of Paul Russell and Robert Jeffrey.
CBC created a similar program, SmartAsk , which aired for three seasons before being cancelled in 2004. From 1973 to 1997 the CBC's French language  network, Radio-Canada , aired a program called Génies en herbe  ("Budding Geniuses"), which was the French language equivalent of Reach for the Top. Competitions continued after the cancellation of the program, and teams from other francophone  countries around the world often participated.

Opening to CBC's Reach for the Top from 1978 - 79. This was taken from the Ontario Regional edition hosted by Brian Smyth. I don't know if the same opening was used for the other CBC affiliates at the time, however the music was used for many editions during the 70s and early 80s. The music is from the Cavendish Music Library
