With a run of 18 years (from 1972 to 1990), this series was the longest running Canadian dramatic prime time TV production in Canadian history. It was canceled as a result of CBC budget cuts and declining viewer ship due to frequently shifting time slots. See more »
I almost can't believe it! I haven't seen hide nor hair about this show since my family departed Erie,Pennsylvania in Jan. of 1977!! When I was in the above listed ages,I'd watch this show every once in awhile on Channel 11 out of Ontario. I had no idea what a "Beachcomber" was but I had a feeling it had something to do with the characters I saw.
I remember the wonderful outdoors/on the water scenes,I looked on in young curiosity as these "good guys" took it upon themselves to make their little part of the world better. Heck,I even remember seeing the commercials.
Wow,17 years! The last time a live action American show ran that long was Gunsmoke! These days,quality shows,like this one,are yanked after a few weeks if they garner no ratings! Only "The Simpsons" has run 17 seasons here lately!
It's always sad to read about those you watched on TV,in movies or whose music you listened too,having passed on. The good thing though,you always have the memories. I gladly rate this show 10 stars and recommend to anyone reading....if you get a chance to see it somehow,I 100% guarantee it's worth your while. It'll make you feel as good as a Gordon Lightfoot album (or CD) He's my favorite Canadian by the way! . (END)
