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.

An unexpected surprise!
22 September 2003 | by (Vancouver) – See all my reviews

Being part of the film industry myself I had heard about this film long before its release and thought 'what a good idea' - an historical journey into British Columbia's film activity. What made this documentary so interesting when I finally did see it was, it didn't feel like a doc., the filmmaker gave it more likeness to a classic feature film. A few minutes in and you were instantly transported to a place and time and introduced to engaging people that made you want to watch and get into the story. The film put 50 years into perspective and delivered it with ease and a certain slickness that's rare in historical documentaries. It made yesterday exciting again.

I'd recommend this to anyone in the film industry, I'd even suggest it to people that are just interested in good storytelling even if some of the detail of the film business is not of interest. After watching this I'd also be curious to see what comes out of this particular filmmaker next.
