Cariboo Country (Series) (1960; 1964-1966)

Cariboo Country was a drama about the people of the fictitious community of Namko, in British Columbia. The first series in 1960 was produced in the CBC Vancouver's small television studio. The later episodes were broadcast as part of CBC's "The Serial" series and included a larger budget. Largely filmed in the magnificent range country of the Chilcotin Plateau in British Columbia, Cariboo Country aimed at authenticity in the casting as well. Producer Philip Keatley used a number of Indians in prominent roles, along with a strong group of professional actors.
