Oldtimers, The (Series) (1974-1975)

This was a CBC series of 8 films about Canadian pioneers who were still living to tell their stories. The subjects were in their seventies, eighties, or nineties, and recounted experiences from across the country. They included a woman who, as a child in 1899, travelled west in a covered wagon, and a man who arrived in the western country to homestead in 1909. Two native women talked about their lives, including one who had registered in an 1877 treaty. Each program gathered the recollections of people around a subject or area.
