Nothing less than a "tour de force!"
3 December 2004 | by (Nova Scotia, Canada) – See all my reviews

I believe this series stands alone. It is comparable to the PBS Ken Burns series "The Civil War" but covers the entire history of Canada. In order to cover such a long period of time, the length of 17 episodes is certainly not too lengthy but there is so much in the series it is difficult to take it all in at a single viewing. I have already watched several episodes a second time. It is frequently visually stunning with historical reenactments and period costumes. The commentary is often emotionally moving and I never tired over all these long hours of hearing Maggie Huculak's mellifluous voice. The music that introduces each episode is wonderful too. While VERY long, I was truly sorry to see it finally end. I just don't see how this could have been done better! A perfect 10 for sure!
