A Pleasure of the Old Times
In 2007, on the Port au Port Peninsula, a local teacher asked well-known accordionist Bernie Felix to offer lessons at his school. Bernie did, and revived a pleasure of the old times among the young. Those kids are now keeping the accordion tradition alive.
The Edge of the Ice
On Labrador's north coast, seals were once the spring staple of the Inuit.
In Makkovik, we found three Inuit hunters who not only remember the old ways, but hold fast to them. We followed them on their annual spring seal hunt, right to the edge of the ice.
Pieces of the Past
When Land & Sea first introduced you to Stan Deering, he and his wife Loretta had moved back to the once abandoned community of Flatrocks, the place of Stan's birth. Since then, Stan's continued recreating the pieces of his past, one building at a time, resulting in a unique walk down memory lane.
The Newfoundland Disaster
In March 1914, the wooden ship Newfoundland passed through the St. John's Narrows, headed for the seal hunt. Days later, 79 crewmembers were dead, frozen to death in a fierce winter storm. On the 100th anniversary, Land & Sea presented this archival special remembering those souls lost in this horrific maritime disaster.
