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 »
There is not a Canadian over the age of 25 that is not familiar with Nick and his life in Gibson's Landing as portrayed on The Beachcombers. To me, there is no CBC series that has become an icon as The Beachcombers have. The strongest was the first 5 season, 1971-1976, before the show lost Hughie and Jesse. Of course, as any long running series (Canada's longest), many original cast members left and in the end, it was only Nick and Relic. A bit hokey, but that was the CBC back then. Filmed on location on the British Columbian coast.
