New Night Walk [4K, Toronto] joins recently-updated Night Ride episode

The first new Night Walk episode in 33 years, just like the second, features new video footage of Toronto over the TV show's original smooth jazz soundtrack from 1986.

Episode 3, filmed this past spring, includes the same walk as the first episode - down Yonge Street from Gerrard Street to Eaton Centre, as well as video from the PATH, Yonge Street between Queen and Front streets, and a new location - Yonge Street in North York.

The full 56-minute ep is at

The music isn't nearly as good.  Too fast, too 'produced'.  Other than that, good for them.  These things are as legitimate historical archives of the city as anything else.  Pity Global didn't do more.


Madness takes its toll.  Please have exact change.

It is. Cinematographer David Crone said he wanted to film episodes for Global in other Canadian cities.

Wonder what kind of scoliosis you get from wearing a 96 lbs steadicam (with one of those beastly Sony BVP-5 betacams) and walking around Chinatown all night?  And the part I can't understand is how NO ONE waves at the camera.   People aren't even noticing it!  Have you seen a circa 1986 steadicam?!  It looks like a Buick engine on a pogo stick, strapped to a vest!  AND they apparently shot it all in one night (in May)

They were noticed more on the second night of shooting (for Night Moves and the second Night Walk ep), which took place about five months after that first night in May.

The most noticable wave happens in Night Moves at this point: https://youtu.be/VFBKGpLNad0?t=640
