Priestly
1 September 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I am sure the CBC appreciated Priestly showing up for his 30 seconds of screen time , however advertising the mini series as staring priestly is wrong.When Canadian TV is making strides with shows like Flashpoint( CTV )and the Boarder ( CBC) , this production reminded me just how bad the CBC can be.The sound track featured circa early 1970 music ( Crowbar Oh what a feeling) despite the fact the expedition occurred in 1982. Also it is a close call whether long necked beer bottles were available during the year leading up to the expedition . There were many scenes in the series that showed the climbers drinking out of longneck bottles when part of our Canadian identify up until 1982 was the Stubby beer bottle .
