North of 60 (Series) (1992-1998)

Aka: Au Nord du 60ème

North of 60
Beginning in December, 1992, North of 60 brought the world of Native Canada into the homes of city and suburban residents. It was a hugely successful series for CBC throughout the country, but especially so in the North, where small towns would nearly come to a standstill on Thursday evenings to watch the show.

Set in the fictional town of Lynx River, NWT, North of 60 covered a wide range of personal and political issues during its six-season run (plus several TV movies). Veteran Canadian TV writers Barbara Samuels and Wayne Grigsby blended the unique atmosphere of a small northern community with human stories that anyone, anywhere could relate to.

The show boasts a high percentage of socially active cast members, including Order of Canada humanitarian Tom Jackson, M.P. Tina Keeper, and youth role models Dakota House and Adam Beach.

North of 60 has been taken off Showcase, in the middle of the 5th season. Why is that?
This show needs to be put back on for its fans.
How else can we keep this show alive, if its being cancelled? Its one of the best Canadian shows aired, and it always will be, because its Canadian Culture at its worse, AND Canadian Culture at its best. It speaks many words to its Fans.
Please bring it back!!!

I don't think CBC owns the rights to the show, so they can't sell it on DVD. Just like CTV doesn't own the right to Corner Gas, I believe the production company, Prairie Pants Productions owns it.

you can still watch the series on Showcase. They occasionally air the made-for-TV movies too!
