: : Hi Bea!

: : Yes, I watched the program and like you, was quite impressed (surprised's a CBC production after all eh?) I plan on taping all of the episodes, although it looks like the series will be available on video. What I really enjoyed, however, was seeing so many of my favourite NC actors from North of 60. Another thing that they incorporated into the episodes that I appreciated and enjoyed was all the information about the Native tribes residing in Canada and their history and culture.

: : Bea, if you're interested in Michael Greyeyes and get the SCI FI channel, he's appearing in a show called Harsh Realm, airing this Sunday (10/29) at 1:00 a.m.

: : I'll email shortly about the Big Bear tape.

: : Thanks!...Jeri

: Good morning, Jeri!

: One of your first sentences made me laugh out loud!!! Yes, a CBC production..All of us Canucks must be very surprised!! :):)

: I also taped it and will continue to so! This way I was able to watch it at my leisure yesterday morning! I am still impressed. The story of the Beothuk was quite fascinating.Oh, did the music sometimes remind you of LOTM?
: Yes, I also recognized a few familiar faces and places. One part about the buffalo hunt was filmed in our province at Head-Smashed-In- Buffalo-Jump.It's a World Heritage Site and worth visiting..( No, Travel Alberta didn't pay me.:):)

: "Harsh Realm" at 1 PM?? Too late for me...I am only able to stay up this late when a certain person from this board chats with me via phone..:):)

: Take care
: Bea
: I'll answer your e-mail soon!!


Hey Bea!

Now that you mention it, some of the music did sound a little like tracks from LOTM. As well, I've read a couple of articles about Head-Smashed-In- Buffalo-Jump in Alberta. Most people have the romantic vision of fleet-footed ponies and their brave warriors streaking across the grasslands chasing the buffalo herds, striking them down with arrow and lance. That's true, of course, but so was the practice of chasing the buffalo herd at full speed off a cliff. Not nearly as romantic, but very practical.
