Reading the National Narrative

New TV History of BC

Sep 16, 2021

For the past couple of years a group of young filmmakers has been hard at work on a documentary series about the history of British Columbia to commemorate the 150th anniversary of 1871, the year the province became a province.

(Full disclosure: I played a very small part in the project, as a consultant and appearing briefly as one of the talking heads.)

The result, a four-part series titled British Columbia: An Untold History, will be premiering on the Knowledge Network on October 12 at 9 p.m. Should be provocative viewing.

You can learn more about the series and preview some of the chapters at the Knowledge Network website.
