Newcomers, The (Series) (1977-1979)

Aka: Les Arrivants

The Newcomers was a series of 7 one-hour films on Canada as a country of immigrant origins. It was produced over the space of three years, and the films were conceived as documentary-dramas, underpinned with authenticity guaranteed by a board of eleven historical advisors. The series was produced in both French and English language versions.

The series employed the talents of some of the country's most notable writing, acting and directing talents to tell a series of instructive narratives set from the time when the land was inhabited by native people to the present day.
