Trivia

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.

Quotes

Betty Thomas: 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.

Saw it, loved it, recommend it!

I love good stories in whatever format they come. This documentary is about making a film industry in western Canada from the 1950s to right now. The people that appear in it are interesting, the story they tell is exciting, the locations the film's shot in are fantastic and the music score throughout the entire movie is brilliant. I'd love to hear more from whoever the person was that did the composing, the guy is amazing!!! I really like history and this film was a great weave of 50 years.

Moreover a film about the film business is always interesting.

I recommend it and like what this filmmaker has done with the subject matter.
