An interesting document recording early filmmaking in British Columbia. The story is told by pioneer film workers who began their careers in the 1950s/60s, and it progresses until we see what the film industry is like in 2003. A worthwhile journey to witness how the business has changed over the decades. Original B/W footage of Oliver Reed and Rita Tushingham filming The Trap (1966) on Bowen Island.

The beginning of television drama in British Columbia was a show called Tidewater Tramp
(1959). A few years later Cariboo Country
(1960) became the first program shot on-location followed by The Littlest Hobo
(1963) - an adventure series which would be the first American-produced show to be filmed in the Province. See more
It was exciting to be part of that because I felt I was part of a family - a family that was starting to build something. We were all traveling in fear and trepidation because we were never sure when the next job would come our way. Literally a year would go by and nothing.
