CBC Television’s Land and Sea has been bringing you stories about the people and places of Newfoundland and Labrador since 1964. Now, in association with Downhome Inc., Canada’s preeminent Atlantic culture publisher, CBC is pleased to offer this special series on DVD. Volume 6 includes three episodes celebrating the 50th anniversary of Land & Sea, plus a visit with one of the youngest outdoors women in the province. Enjoy the DVD as it takes a deeper look at people who live close to nature, preserving traditional ways and sharing their enthusiasm for life on the land and on the sea.
50th Anniversary Special
1964 - The sound of make and break engines still echoed in most harbours, and salt fish was still king. Television was different too. In the first of our 50th anniversary specials, we asked former host Dave Quinton to take us back to that time when Land and Sea was young.
The Shows That Touched You the Most
In the second of our 50th anniversary specials, we highlight three of the shows you’ve told us are your favourites. You’ll see what some of those shows are, and hear from the people who’ve been moved by them.
The Big Land
Some of Land and Sea’s most adventurous shoots have been in Labrador. We’ve slept on spruce boughs, in canvas Labrador tents, in trappers’ tilts and cabins. We’ve been on dog team and snow machine. In this, the third of our anniversary specials, we bring you some of the best of 50 years in The Big Land.
Bonus Episode Riverside
She’s not your average 27-year-old. A look at Ashley Hann’s life in a cabin on Newfoundland’s Humber River. She loves all that’s part of living riverside – the salmon fishing, the hunting, the wood cutting, the gardening – and her uncle’s taught her how to do it all.
