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 »
Wow. Until I stumbled across this entry on IMDB, I had no idea that 'Nick' and 'Relic' were both gone. That is sad. I watched this as a kid growing up in northern Maine, we got Channel 6 outta St John really clear, and of course this, 'Mr Dress Up' and 'the Friendly Giant' were staples of a kid's TV viewing at the time.
They don't make them like this anymore, 'Beachcombers' kinda fit in with the Waltons, Little House, Disney flix, all wholesome kinda family entertainments, nothing too scary or controversial. It was shot right there on location in Gibson's BC, it had many locals-Inuits, Japaneses, French, etc come and go too-which is Realistic for the BC Coast. Not tokenism, just-opening the window and showing what's out there.
Good show, good memories, 'Nick' vs. 'Relic' was always fun.
*** outta ****
