The Story of Canada Through the Eyes of Its People
17 October 2003 | by KalamanSee all my reviews

I saw this ambitious and monumental documentary on the history of Canada three years ago on CBC. It was rightly advertized as a major event in Canadian television and deservedly won several awards. I can't really remember the specific episodes but I know it began with an episode called "When the World Began..." and ended with "An Uncertain World, 1975 to 1990". It was well-told and I was thoroughly absorbed.

I would love to watch it again.
